Robson Square

This is Robson Square, refurbished just for these Winter Olympics. I “gotta” be honest; as an English teacher and a fan of good advertising, “GOTTA BE HERE” greatly annoys me.  First off, I don’t “gotta” be anywhere, and secondly, that’s the best we could do?  Really?

    I’d ‘hafta’ agree with you. It’s rather cheesy.

    Gorgeous photo and excellent observation on the “gotta”. I minored in English in undergrad and while I’m not an expert grammarian, little abbreviated “words” like gotta make me grind my teeth.
