    I've but done voice-over work?

    Hello,

    I'm again transcribing a YouTube video,

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFxKt1sexVc

    ...and I'm having problem with this one tiny part. It's on between 1:00 and 1:03, where I think the guy says,
    "Man, look, I mean, I've but done voice-over work..."
    I must have heard this wrong, because judging from the context, the 'but' shouldn't be there. The guy is basically saying he's done quite a few voice-over works but does not hold a candle to Morgan Freeman. If he indeed has said "but" there, he's saying he's done everything but voice-over work, and that doesn't go well with the overall context.

    Again, much obliged for your help.

    Re: I've but done voice-over work?

    Possibly it has to do with the sound quality of the recording. In any case, it makes sense without the "but" and doesn't with it. In short, I agree with you. (Say: quite a bit of voice over work or quite a few voice over jobs.)

    Re: I've but done voice-over work?

    Ah thank you for pointing out the error, Tarheel. I did know there were two versions of the word, one countable and one uncountable, but I couldn't quite tell them apart, hence the error. Thanks to your correction, I finally got to kick my lazy butt and google the difference :)
