    Have heard a few guest speakers lately on the radio, mainly females I must admit, the number of times they say ‘UM’ after just a few words and all the way through  what ever it is they are talking about  it is appalling,   ‘UM ‘sounds dreadful.  I wonder if anyone ever speaks to them about this habit that they probably don’t even realize they do it

    And this has been on the ABC

    Only yesterday it occured to me that the news reporters seem to be mostly young girls about 18 with gravel voices,  the ones reporting from outside locations

    These ones are literally lost for words if they can’t see the Cheat sheet! It seems time that public speaking should be a mandatory subject in schools as so much communication is just texting.

    And a lot say ‘er’ which sounds just as bad.

    “you know” is one that gets me, mostly from interviewees.

    As I have posted previously the standard of diction has reduced in recent years.

    Even the standard of every day speech in many cases has resulted in a mumble [yes my hearing has deteriorated] and much of the conversation is a gabble. At one time there were broadcast training schools and  it is obvious which announcers graduated from these.

    The standard of the ABC of past years is missing
