Mark Twain, who confessed to being a really good speller, claimed that it was a curse. Maybe he had a point.

Now if we could just get rid of all those superfluous apostrophe's that are becoming the accepted way too create the plural form. EEK!

We've become so accustomed to repeating these errors, we include them in our every-day speech...then worry that someone overhearing might think WE are the dummies!!! (such as "backerds"!!!) Hehehe!

Up here in northern PA, some of the less educated say "I seen it" and "sammich" for sandwich and liberry for library (although I have heard these on TV, too.

Also, try "your" "you're"

As a coed friend once said when describing something impressive: "Ossum!"

A long time ago, I used to correct everyone's grammar. I thought, surely they WANT to know how to speak correctly. Guess what? They didn't...and don't. Pretty soon LOLCAT English will be the norm. I can haz cheezburger? Sigh.

I, too, must be a reincarnated English professor... irregardless of what others think. (or as my daughter says: dis-irregardless) :-)))
