John when you say ‘overtly’ you mean ‘overly’. Like on Monday when you told Paul Henry “I’m not overtly stressed..”. Sometimes, you say something like ‘we’re not overtly planning X’ when you just mean ‘we’re not planning X’.
Here’s a little hypothetical test. What’s wrong with this sentence?
“I’m not overtly concerned by scuttlebug from various allegators about textses from the Afghanistanians to the Taliban giving away SAS positions”
Correct – you wouldn’t even bother to talk about that.
