Ha,it is funny
I want to change my job someday

Hello!
I saw a new shortened phrase: "innit"?
Harry said: That’s my job, innit?
A friend of mine said that this word is used by people from the lower class or gangsters...
Maybe she is just a snob, who knows, but I'd like to know in which cases I am allowed to write and to speak this phrase?

Hello Marichy,

'Innit' is a variant form of 'isn't it' but is used more generally also as a kind of question tag at the end of any sentence. It is a non-standard form and a part of slang. Like all such forms, it is appropriate only in certain contexts. A group of teenagers might use it when talking to each other, but if one of them tried to use it at, say, a formal event such as when giving a speech at a funeral then it would be inappropriate.

Slang is a complex phenomenon, but it exists across social class divisions. Rich people use slang, though it may be different from that of poorer people. Using 'innit' is certainly not any sign of being a criminal!

Hi, can you please explain the pharse " gone off to work". It means Johnny just lelf the coffee shop to work ?
Thanks

Hello quynhanhNT,

Yes, that's right. You can find 'go off' in our dictionary (see the grey box on the right); you'll see there that one meaning of 'go off' is 'leave'.
