A column from The Daily Telegraph by Tom Chivers on the subject of one of my pet hates, the pointless upgrading of me to myself.
Often it is used in place of ‘I’, as if in place of me wasn’t bad enough. To demonstrate how silly this usage is and this is how it usually works, maybe you say, Tom and myself went for a beer. If Tom changes his mind and you go alone, would you say, Myself went for a beer?
Another one he touches on, momentarily for in a moment, you hear it on the radio all the time.
