Hands up who should have asked for a dictionary for Christmas! :read: :biglaugh:
Couldn't agree more. Never sure if its auto correct or not, sometimes its just the ever creeping americanisation of the English language and culture!Hands up who should have asked for a dictionary for Christmas! :read: :biglaugh:
It would be your lifetime's work to find and correct all the poor English on here.
I've only recently just about managed to turn a blind eye to it.
Poor use of the apostrophe, or in some cases no use at all, is one of the main culprits, as in stewal's example above.
Sorry stewal. I don't generally target people.
But if your Brakes do Break while you Braking, you may end up Breaking something or someone ... either way you're going to end up Broke :smash:I don't normally think of commenting on any of the poor spelling/grammar/punctuation as tbh, it's a bit petty on a forum like this. But once in a while, like with the above mentioned breaks / brakes, I thought it ought to be flagged so someone might actually learn from what is obviously a bit of poor spelling rather than just a typo or lazy punctuation.
Brakes are brakes, whether in the UK or the US. And if they are broken, they are still brakes, not breaks :wink_org:
