*This question is posted on my errantly titled "German Only" post but it's now on page 3 and I'm realy interested in the answer.*
Expatbrit, I have a question about "proper" English spoken by your ilk over there across the pond. What the hell is up with the invisable "R" added to words that end with the letter "A"? For example:
Written: We are in America.
Brit speak: We are in America.
Written: America is at war.
Brit speak: AmericER is at war.
Another example from a UK band, Oasis:
Written: a champaign supernova
Brit speak: a champaign supernova
Written: a champaign supernova in the sky
Brit speak: a champaign supernovER in the sky
Why the ER dude?
