Two

Have we the British people lost the ability to say twice ?

Why is it almost every one now says two time's this / that when describing two items or things that happened ? why can't we now say it happened twice ?
When watching the news on all TV channels the presenters say two time is I find annoying !

I don't get to watch TV so have not noticed. Presumably, two timing is still okay to say when discussing politicians spousal loyalty? ;-)
.
Is twice going to become as rare as thrice, do you think?

I fully agree with you and have often remarked on the habit to my wife, and this is only the tip of the iceberg. Reply

I still say it, two times seems bad grammar to me, but listening to presenters on TV irritates me enormously as they sound like they've never been to school. Reply
