Does that effect have an affect on all of this?
So how many of you “unthawed” today?
Did it feel good or was it a bit cold?
Oh man, I still have to really think about this one whenever i’m typing something. Sometimes I just change the sentence and avoid the word all together lol.
Then let’s discuss than and then rather than your and you’re?
I’m from Texas and I feel like I hear this one a lot.
Honey, bring me a Coke would ya?
No biggee. Same as Xerox being interchangeable with photocopy. “Get me a Xerox of those invoices.” Did we switch gears from the written word to dialect?
Just a quick semi relevant example. We can get this back on track.
I think that’s just a regional thing. I’m from Michigan and we call it a “pop”. Other areas say “soda” I think.
I was born in New Jersey and do not drink coffee. I drink kawfee. Sometimes I tawk to people when I drink my kawfee.
I don’t understand it when Americans selectively add the “u” in certain words; favourite, colour, flavour - makes no sense mateys!
I thought you drank cawps of cawfee.
That’s a British thing, not American. They love throwing an extra ‘u’ into words.
Not an American thing. We dropped the “u”s in 1776.
The version of firefox supplied with Suse linux seems to think those are the correct version, even though as noted it’s a brit thing.
Interesting… around the time of independence.
We use ‘U’ in our words here in 'Straya, too.
Yes it’s a British thing but American’s do it - doesn’t make sense - do a search of “favourite” on the forum and I’m sure you’ll find something lol
I think with some specific words (a small percentage of the words British and Aussie people spell differently than I do) remembering how we spell them in the U.S.A. is difficult since we see the other spellings so much (and the other spellings are allowed in auto-correct dictionaries too)
Those are just the Americans that watch too much British TV. Best to ignore them.
In New Jersey everyone just said cups. I think in Boston they say cawps.
