Is this the same trend that has lots of people adding 'back' after return, i.e. 'return back' (which is grating I must admit).
Really ?
So parked means parked i.e. parked at the gate, parked in your driveway (car) parked at the shopping centre etc
Parked up means parked long term i.e. parked up at Alice Springs, to put a vehicle in a place where it can stay for some time

Parked = short term
Parked up = long term

There’s a difference between languages evolving on one hand and increasing levels of illiteracy on the other. ‘Return back’ (like ‘revert back’) are just solecisms, pure and simple. ‘Should of’ (like ‘could of’) instead of ‘should have’ or ‘could have’ are just solecisms. ‘Your going to’ … ‘Just incase’… ‘I’m lead to believe’… All just solecisms.

2 + 2 will never equal 5, no matter how many innumerates say otherwise.

On the same topic, why do most Australian airlines say ".....flight through to Sydney"? Surely it's the same context as "going to the shops". No one says "I'm going through to the shops"

How do you explain this sort of thing, then:

Reports proving flight next week.

Should only apply if there is a stop on route
