Until.... Can't Post or Reply Privately

I see on ITV's Rugby World Cup advertisement they show a sign on a door saying "Closed till half time"

Now I know until is a long 5 letter word but why do we need to shorten it to 'til and then spell it wrongTongue

Unless of course the shop's till is closed at half time....

I think you need to get out more!

As per the WDYG thread, spend more time going round the bottom!

Think it's more worrying that he is watching ITV in the first place.

Most dictionaries seem to recognise both till and 'til as valid informal abbreviations of until. I've seen the former used for years, I've hardly ever seen the latter used.

I agree, though that having an abbreviation for a 5-letter word is a bit unnecessary, and that any use of language that makes the meaning ambiguous or unclear is not a good thing.



If you're going to/been to a Hampshire Premier League match, I'd really appreciate you filling in a questionnaire - available in the Groundhopping/General section, or just PM me for a copy. Thanks.
