    it must be annoying for so many english language experts...
    What is more important... speaking more than one language or speaking only one and obsessing over it?
    communication is the purpose of language. If you understand what the intent of communication is..........
    ohh boy, this is going to go well ;-)

    p.s. - i know the lesson is on basic english...
    Thanks for the lesson!

    Don't take abooooot away from me!

    I swear that us Canadians never actually say it (at least where I'm from). I have to force myself to in order to get all that long O action. But every time my wife and I meet some new couple down here the first thing they say is "where are you from?" When I ask why they inevitably say "you dropped a few abooots."

    You make a very good point - many may be of another language.

    However, I would guess a good portion of these errors are from the good ol USA.

    Also, believe you me, I have very little room to talk myself.

    I'm sure much can be contributed to my making most my posts from my treo. And others have a similar excuse.

    Although,
    The examples posted by myself and others don't need to be considered as 'talking down', they are simply examples of common errors that are commonly made by even those who speak english - and not just on the interwebs.

    They're there in their house. You're in your house. Irregardless.
