From my perspective ?? - I dont give a F about english language.What does "For mine" mean? I noticed cricket commentators start to use the term 5 years ago. Have never heard anyone in real life use it. I asked my mother who has a degree in English and spent 20 years teaching English at high school and she has no idea of where the phrase comes from and hadn't heard of it.
It is a new millenium expression? Serious question. Would very much like to know.
Your use of it is the first time have seen someone use it on a message board.
Welcome to the forum by the way if you are a new.
I don't mean to be a jerk - just find that expression jarring.
Don't know where it originated but my granddad used it whenever anyone asked for advice. He'd reply "in my mind you'd be better to do.....' or when he was asked what option he would prefer he'd come up with "its a red for mine"'. Funny language English.For mine = In my mind
In my mind, I think we need to...
For mine, I think we need to...
in England it would be "We was in the hunt until they scored all them points."I've heard "for mine" used plenty of times outside of league circles so its a fairly common term in the English vocabulary.
What I cant understand with league players is why "those" often gets replaced with "them". Such as "We were in the hunt until they scored all them points."
it is.....but it's more than that. It's part of that v. complex class/inverse snobbery/can't have real masculine credentials if you can speak proper ( sic ) that this country is so full ofThat’s a sort of sub language used by ex footballers on the telly, Alan Shearer, Ian Wright etc.
