Much obliged - 18 months of teaching English to slavic speakers has turned me into a pedant of the highest order....

Tldr - probably, nothing. It’s one of those verbs where there is no active accusative meaning, maybe because it’s derived from a sensory perception. For what it’s worth I believe that ‘show’ comes from the Middle English for ‘to reveal’ in a prophetic sense, so it would have originally had a more intellectual than visual sense.

Don’t think so. A modal + infinitive, or passive construction are the only general uses that come to mind.

Haven’t posted much this year on account of a kid, covid and general stuff. But I still enjoy lurking about the place, and keeping up with all the informed (or otherwise) opinions on everything from Town to UK politics. In fact I’ve especially appreciated the latter since moving abroad, it’s often felt like a genuine insight into what people are feeling at home that it’s hard to get elsewhere.

So I just want to wish you all the very best, and hope everyone has a half decent end a pretty sh1t year. Take care and COYB

Yeah mate fully agree, mine is six months and I only started sleeping properly in August. Lucky I've got a big extended family on the wife's side who are all pretty good with kids. Mad though all the innocuous stuff that terrifies the life out of me now

I know right.

How can anyone say this kind of slander when Boris is only trying his best?

Agree there seems to be a culture of removing civil liberties in the name of... safety, maybe? Seems like the sort of thing that would never be put up in normal times but seems more normal in an age of increasing restrictions.

Also is it just the thumbnail or is Zarah a new Heidi?

You know it's good when you see the players and still have no real clue as to the formation.

I'd guess Skuse at CB, 3 CMS, Judge up front? Lord help us.
