The Continuing Saga Of English As A Second Language

I caught myself doing something English this morning. I was saying the name of a hard-rock band called "Grinderman" (if you're of a sensitive nature, don't look up anything about them on iTunes or anything because their big song right now is written from the point of view of a man who hasn't had love in awhile, but it's put a little more bluntly. Grinderman is led by an Aussie bloke named Nick Cave, who's been around for quite awhile.). Anyway I realized I'd pronounced the name of the band GRIND-er-min, rather than the way I might have pronounced it in the States, GRIND-er-MAN.

I don't know why I've started talking like that.
