Indeed, this is one topic of discussion that I simply must partake in.
Far too often I see disgraceful examples of incorrect spelling and it is most frequently from the English that these discrepancies are made.
Here are some more examples:-
It was to cold...... no, no, no. It was TOO cold.
It was there fault...... aaargh! It was THEIR fault.
I carnt do it...... for goodnes sake. I CAN'T do it.
Then there's the almost incomprehensible use of modern day short-hand.
R U gonna B goin 2 the shopz l8er
You should have noticed that I omited to employ a question mark at the end of that last sentence, this is typical of the type of people who choose to type in this way.
Are you going to the shops later?
Now this time the sentence is much easier to read and ironically if you include the spaces they both contain 33 characters.
There is no excuse for it. I for one did not pay a great deal of attention at school (or skool) yet I am able to excercise a modicum of pride in my ability to correctly use my native language, so why are so many other Englishmen and women apparently unable to do the same?
I know a Turkish born young man who lives in Germany and speaks fluent Turkish, German and English... his English is far better than that of most English people, at least it is far better than most of those who CHOOSE to join in on forums.
