The thoughts of me and my dog who used to be Harvey, but is now George, who is Harvey's great-great-great-great-nephew.
I know how you feel Liz!
The constant annoyance of other people's typos, misspellings and grammar mistakes is the liability we veterans of proper English lessons have to endure....Wen is sumthin goin to be dun abowt it?
I don't think it's going to get any better since the advent of texting...not that I text...but I hear it's a complete new language.
I would prefer if the apostrophe was omitted if in doubt, jams. It's less offensive that way i think.Perhaps those nice Messrs Cameron and Clegg will sort out our schooling along with everything else, nick!I refuse to use it, leslie. As a result it takes me ages to write even a short text message!
Textspeak would be okay if it were left in texts. When it shows up in blog comments, e-mails, and school assignments, well...My ordinary typos are bad enough.
Yes, Liz, you are a pedant ... but you're lovely with it! :)Pisses me off too.
pls read "Eats,shoots and leaves" ;-)But consider the poor French.Their word "peche" has three different meaning (peach,sin,fish) depending on where you add the accents ;-)
You're right, katney.Thank you, calum!Have done, stu. It's a good job I'm not French then. Hair and horse are similar too I think. In French that is.
I know exactly how you felt!
It was, of cours, the pup's carrot's, cauliflour's, pea's, cabbage's and other item's that require the greengrocers apo'stroph'e.
I'll try to edit before hitting "semd." Laptops ruin the best typist skills; my skills on regular keyboard were less than immaculate.
An apostrophe in time.
I'm looking for a black labrador pup to replace Meg but I am not sure I would be taking up any offers for a black labrador pups' as I dread to think what I'd receive.
See this photo too ;-)http://failblog.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/43b91267-da5b-4379-beb3-29c35fe92940.jpg
