Merely observing . . .

The on-line OED renders ‘threshold’ as thresh’-hold, while my old print edition (1971) has thre’-shoaled. Actually, in the former the ‘h’ is in parentheses, but the audio reflects my version.
As I say (but may not really believe), “After all, language is what people say, not what I say”.
Another nifty, subtle zeugma.
