The Product of a Bad Education

Or bad parenting. Or the modern age.
Anyone who says ‘you know’ or ‘like like’ or even ‘like like you know you know’ – have I heard Kate Bush say this?
Anyone who says ‘gooder’ – I heard a radio 4 today presenter use this word. I really thought radio 4 was one of the last refuges of good English. Maybe I will have to go to India.
Even worse is ‘betterer’ or ‘worse-er’.
And was it in a dream this morning that I heard familiar words had been dropped from the Oxford English dictionary?
Buttercup? Maybe they have been ‘extincted’ by people paving their front gardens. Cassette? ‘Extincted’ by cassettes and downloads.
