    Very very true, the truly contemptable "Thames Valley" English (a mixture of cockney and other southern dialects" is horrific. However English (neutral accent) is a delight. One thing most people don't realise is that in England there are some 700+ regional dialects, many of which are all but mutually incomprehensible to each other.

    Couldn't agree more about Amerika though. The Yanks have been barstewardising the language for decades to the point where American english is almost moronic in nature.

    Walao!
    Why get irked? Be more tolerent.

    Change your perspective and change your life. You see a problem - good. Now look at it from another perspective. It is an opportunity!!!

    Now do u see a mass market waiting for u to tap? Open a 1 day course in "Common English mistakes" Charge a fee and grow rich. Or b more noble - conduct free classes.

    Bear in mind when u conduct such courses. Many of your students will make such common mistakes, please dont belittle them. Instead, mold them to speak n write good English.

    if that person is a great photographer, it really doesnt matter if he typed a len, or a lenses. cos he /she doesnt need that to earn big bucks.
    And so is any other ppl out there.
