When you learn a new language, you're not even sure what you're really saying and how it should be, so you follow all the rules hoping you don't mess it up.
If it's you first language you know exactly what you're doing, so you don't care as much.
wasnt it one time pointed out we do it on purpose to piss off the english, and also we adapt words from other languages to our owned. I mean thats why theres english and american
Nah nah nah. Honestly there's no reason to be language purists here.
I've read that the English accent was a newer development, and that Americans (or some) actually speak closer to what the language was long ago. I just don't know how the hell that could be verified.
Not so much latin spanish, that's more Spanglish and Nahuatl.
Idk if it's a shame. Most people don't butcher the mother tongue, but pick a dialect. I did so. Language by-the-books is boring. People just wanna be more personalFenrari: You'll find that any native speaker, when given the opportunity, can and will butcher their mother tongue.
It's a shame, really.
I happen to know that, exactly the reason for why you pointing it out showed that you didn't get what was said.
Yes, a typo from a person who doesn't show signs of having problems with grammar is very relevant to the topic of people who suck at english.
And mocking is a type of joke, just a malicious one. It SHOULD have been quite obvious, not requireing any further input neither from you nor me. And no, you never asked for an explanation - you just plunged right into a battle about gun rights, because you took it 100% at face value. So no, obviously you don't have a problem. Or a history of this kind of thing. :V

And man, just returning to FAF after so long, it's somehow heart-warming to see Thatch and Roose like this. I'm glad we're all okay (except for the dead that I've already forgotten).
Because this is 'MERRICA, and in 'MERRICA, we speak 'MERRICAN.
â€¢"Listening to a well-known Hollywood radio commentator some time back, I heard her say that she had just returned from a Yerpeen trip, and had had a lovely time nittly. I at once recognized her as an accomplished Slurvian linguist and, being a student of Slurvian, readily understood that she had just returned from a European trip, and while there (in Yerp) had had a lovely time in Italy."
(John Davenport, "Slurvian Self-Taught." The New Yorker, June 18, 1949)
People don't use correct english mainly because they are lazy. Just like abbreviations in texts.
It would be, if that sentence actually made sense.
...And yet that didn't stop an English person from actually yelling something like that at a bewildered friend of mine once. Which I why I used it as an example.
Eventually he deciphered that the guy was asking him to grab a flashlight out of the trunk.
Hey, wouldn't be fun for me if I didn't have a challenge or two... glad to see you back, Grim.
You're in the deep south, Fen. Of course nobody's going to speak English there. :V
