quicko: assuming you've got issues

Australians have got ISSues, man! They cannot say the word "issue" to save their lives. Either that or they've got all strange lisps that manifest themselves only in very specific circumstances; namely, when saying "issues" or "assume." How this developed I have no idea, but I for one take issue with Australian issues.

Ah! :0) I know what you mean - I sometimes have to have a quick think about the "ss" and the "sh" pron! *blushes*
