Our survey says... EH-OH (I can't write down that noise. Eh-oh makes it look like the tellitubbies...)

You need to be writing it in a language where pitch is significant.

Incidentally, looking at the poll responses, how come so few people can spell "Chatterley" correctly?

Because they were over confident in their spelling ability and therefore did not look it up on Google (as I did). Although know that I think about it I didn't need to look it up on Google as a D. H. Lawrence anthology is part of my pile of books to get my monitor to the ergonomically correct level.

Or too lazy to check the spelling when I realised I couldn't spell it properly!

Because there's only AFAIK one famous libel case that can be referred to with the words Lady Ch*t*l*y (where * can be anything) and so we were too lazy to look it up given that what was written was unambiguous? And most people seem to have got it right anyway.

Actually I was just thinking it was surprising how many people could spell it correctly.

Mmm. After I posted that comment, suddenly people started being able to spell it correctly. I responded to the poll at about the same time so you can see the before-and-after spread of spellings. (-8

One of my teacher-friends uses that as a catchphrase (unless being observed by humourless people).
