Dear British reader, if I have one.
I'm currently reading John Le Carré's "Our game" and the hero (a mr Timothy d'Abell Cramner, no less) keeps saying "Hullo" left and right. I've seen this before and always wondered about that U. Hullo? Is it a public school thing? An upper class accent of sorts? Why not hello? And could you give me an example of what it sounds like? Someone I might know of that says hullo?
Thank you ever so much for your kind cooperation. Please excuse my ignorance.
Anna d'Abell Cramner
