I'm pretty sure I haven't been pronouncing hyperbole wrong all these years.
Oh, I'm so glad you posted that, I heard it too and thought my hearing
aids were playing up.
I watched an American program about chimpanzees the other day and was
appalled at the bad grammar of the narrator who frequently spoke
sentences where object and subject were reversed. I was shouting at the
tv. Then I switched over to watch the Chester Zoo programe and the
English commentator did the same thing.
Needless to say, I can't remember the exact words now but it was
something to the effect that what the fish had done had worked and now
the keepers were courting or mating or spawning or laying eggs or whatever.
