Time to think of other superlatives
IS it not about time Strictly Come Dancing on the BBC, had a name-change to AMAZING Come Dancing?
The use of the word “amazing” has grown at a
positively alarming rate everywhere … but Strictly most certainly takes the cake for repetition.
I’ve heard some of the presenters use it three times in the same sentence, closely followed by the dancers. It’s as if the word had just appeared on the scene, maybe four years ago, and has now completely taken over from the old stalwarts such as … fantastic, wonderful, fabulous, great, terrific, splendid.
Surely I’m not the only one who is, by now, fed-up hearing it? BOB DOUGLAS, Corbridge
