Project 1

  1. 1. John Humphrys meets Johnny Rotten
  2. 2. John Humphrys John Humphrys has been a presenter of Radio 4's Today programme since January 1987. Humphrys has a reputation as a tenacious and forthright interviewer; occasionally politicians have been very critical of his style after being subjected to a tough interview on live radio
  3. 3. Johnny Rotten John Joseph Lydon (born 31 January 1956), also known by his former stage name Johnny Rotten, is an English singer-songwriter, best known as the lead singer of punk rock band the Sex Pistols from 1975 until 1978
  4. 4. What could we learn? • 1.- Compare accents - BBC style - working class • 2.- Harsh and rude speech - Abuse of you, don´t, imperative and non gradable adverbs
  5. 5. • 3.- How to deal with an insult/offense/affront (The famously abrupt Lydon didn't react well to the journalist's suggestion that he wasn't the only young person to be "anti-establishment. He hit out at the interviewer) • JR:..” you silly sausage”; Stop it, don't be silly • JH:..” I’ve never been called a silly sausage before”
  6. 6. Silly Sausage, a light hearted insult to describe someone who is being silly or generally stupid.
  7. 7. • 4.- To Rile Someone Up (annoy, bother, disturb, irritate, provoke, peeve) Humphrys riled Lydon further by suggesting "it was great publicity", with the singer responding, "Great publicity?? It carried a death sentence mate. Let's get serious."
  8. 8. Degrees of anger (in increasing intensity) • to be / get steamed up - feel annoyed • to be / get hot under the collar - feel irritated • to be on the warpath - prepare to vent one's anger • to be up in arms - protest strongly • to be hopping mad - feel very angry • to fly off the handle - suddenly lose one's temper • to throw a wobbler - become suddenly angry with someone and break down in tears • to do one's nut - totally lose one's temper • to hit the ceiling / roof - comprehensively lose one's temper • to blow one's top / a fuse / a gasket - totally lose one's temper • to rant and rave - to argue loudly and energetically
