It’s everywhere. Cashiers ask, “Would you like your receipt, or no?” Relatives ask, “Are you stopping here first, or no?” Interviewers ask, “Did you always want to be an actor, or no?”
What happened to “or not,” as in, “Do you like it, or not?”—which is a short way of asking, “Do you like it or not like it?” It’s not a short way of saying, “Do you like it, or no like it?”
The “or no” phrase just doesn’t make sense to me. I understand that it imitates the balance of “yes or no,” but where did it come from? Why? Try as I might to be open-minded about change, the phrase makes me wince a little inside each time I hear it.
I know my ear will probably be used to it in a year or two, though.
