So the chancellor mentioned aspiration 16 times in his speech yesterday.
When I studied phonetics some 40+ years ago, I was taught that aspiration was the puff of air that accompanied the articulation of a voiceless plosive, Basically, it was just hot air. Seems appropriate somehow.
In those days, a pint of beer could be bought for between 2/- and a half a crown. A penny off your pint would have meant something. Nowadays, with the price of beer exceeding £3 a pint, a penny off is neither here or there. It's just a gimmick.
