My housemate is Portuguese, she is a walking anti-SPAG bomb. Shallow would beat her to death within minutes of meeting her.

Only if he had practised a sport which includes real-time, unscripted training scenarios.

Using a language which is not your first pretty much gets a free pass from me. I'm abysmal at Foreign, so I see no reason why I should hold non-native speakers to my standards (especially when most native speakers are too lazy to manage them either).

My punctuation has improved since signing up to Tez. Truth.

Sorry, Shallow. :(

Queen's English Society says enuf is enough, innit?
Society formed 40 years ago to protect language against poor spelling and grammar closes because too few people care

Lewis Smith
guardian.co.uk, Monday 4 June 2012 18.16 BST

The Queen may be celebrating her jubilee, but the Queen's English Society, which has railed against the misuse and deterioration of the English language, is to fold.

For 40 years the society has championed good English – and hasn't been above the occasional criticism of the Queen's own pronouncements – but it has finally conceded that it cannot survive in the era of textspeak and Twitter.

Having attempted to identify a role for the society and its magazine, Quest, "for the next 40 years", the society chairman, Rhea Williams, decided it was time to close. She announced the group's demise in a terse message to members following the annual meeting, which just 22 people attended. "Despite the sending out of a request for nominations for chairman, vice-chairman, administrator, webmaster and membership secretary, no one came forward to fill any role," she said. "So I have to inform you that QES will no longer exist. There will be one more Quest, then all activity will cease and the society will be wound up. The effective date will be 30 June 2012."

I've never even heard of the Queen's English Society. I suspect that might be symptomatic of their problem.

This is a mistake which I have noticed a number of times recently; the instances cited above are just ones I picked from a forum search. So, today's lesson:

Deprecation (pronounced depp-ree-kay-shun) and depreciation (pronounced dee-pre-shee-ay-shun) are not the same word.

His new username made me think more highly of him, and I get the impression I'm not the only one.

He's done this before, changing from Triggerhappy to Trigg and using Trigger from Only Fools and Horses as an avatar in an effort to be more humourous.

Obvious typo is obvious. No less annoying for that, though.

Of course I am. Everybody is allowed to make mistakes - it's part of the learning experience.
