    If you look at the results, you'll see that it should be 'now' or is an occurence where there's a full stop in the middle.

    Hello tdol. Thank you for your reply. I was just curious whether M56 considered it as a typo or not -- since, it seems to me, he is a proponent of a grammar of spoken (or spontaneous) English.
    (Then what's wrong with gjo123's kind reply...??)

    thanks
    Sorry, ssendur, but I don't give out my personal email. Hope you understand.

    that is not the point sir, i just wanted to send you my voice somehow.
    it doesnt matter if that address is your email or not. then i have another solution that just came to my mind writing to these. i will upload my voice to geocities and i will give you the address and hopefully you will download it and evaluate it, what about that?:)

    That would be OK. It may take me some days to respond though.

    I've just googled and found that this expression is used.
    M56, would you kindly explain its meaning and usage to me?
    Thanks a lot, in advance!
    It's not an English expression.

    When I used the term "awful," I was referring to the difficulty non-native speakers must have when straining to hear and translate words being spoken which are not being spoken clearly, but rather with a slur. gjo123
