The silly season continues for Guardian letter writers. Here’s another one relating to the close NZ DRESS vowel, then Newcastle GOAT heard as NURSE. Then yet more NZ.
I think the last one goes too far, at least as far as Sally is concerned. You’d have to come from Glasgow or Belfast to mistake NZ TRAP for KIT.
But for a Londoner to mistake northern Irish SQUARE for NURSE is all too likely.

That’s it. There will now be a two-week break in this blog. Next posting: 23 August.
Meanwhile, to keep you entertained while I’m away, there’s more silly fun to be had from Jack Windsor Lewis and Karen Chung.
