I have spent nearly 20 years out of 70 going to school. One of the things that I have learned is that WORDS are critically important when communicating. But, I don't think everyone shares my belief. A major abuser of the language of communication is the communication industry itself. I refer specifically to television.
How many times have we heard a TV news reader say, "NEXT we have the weather report - RIGHT AFTER the break"? We then watch a few commercials, and then the news resumes. NO WEATHER REPORT. There are usually several stories before the weather report, maybe even another break.
Here's the problem - three words, NEXT and RIGHT AFTER.
What do there three words mean? When I went to school NEXT meant "Immediately following". RIGHT, as in "Right After" meant "In exact location". AFTER meant "later in time".
RIGHT AFTER meant NEXT.
Have I missed something??????
