On a slightly unrelated note, have you ever seen an American trying to read out Loughborough when they see it written down? It's amusing how many come up with Loogaborooga.

When I'm on my phone my darn autocorrect changes nevill to Neville! Silly technology. I do use an iPhone tho and apparently there is no uckfield on maps either (if only that was true in real life)
