Hotspur's Comments

Often with a pronounced "t" is grating to my ears. I consider it bad usage. We know the 't' wasn't pronounced in Victorian England, because such pronunciation would have ruined one of W.S. Gilbert's best jokes in "The Pirates of Penzance" -- the scene in which Major General Stanley mishears "often" as "orphan."
