image for Emma Thompson's Language Jibe Backed By Expert
You have to be understood to do this proper...

A top elocution expert has backed actor Emma Thompson's broadside against modern teen speak.

Thompson, speaking to pupils at her old school, complained that filling sentences with expressions "like" and "innit" made young people sound stupid.

And her stance has received high-powered backing.

Head of Speech and Voice at the prestigious North Ealing Academy of Dramatic Arts, Millicent Dunk-Parrity said: "Ho yus! She's bang on, is that Thompson!

"'S'like I was, like, wi' some of me kids jes las' week han' I was sayin' exactly ve same, wasn't I? I'm forced ter in my job, ain't I?

"I mean, har'yre gonna be understood doin'at Shakespeare stuff and stuff an' all that other feater and film stuff, if no sod can 'ear yer proper.

"For sure, Emma Thompson's got this right, all right. Yup. No problem. Cheers."
