Thread Name: We must stop correcting grammar
Subject: RE: We must stop correcting grammar
When leeneia took Tattie Bogle to task for "wasting our time", I looked back at Tattie Bogul's post to see what had caused leeneia's reaction but accidently skipped the relevant post and went to an earlier one. On re-reading this earlier post, I realised that there was a punchline
.............to which he replied,"Your welcome"!
that I hadn't seen. I read it with its intended meaning without noticing the deliberate grammatical mistake.
As leeneia said: ....many people don't analyze language. They just let it flow over them.
Do you know what txtspk is? Do you know what l33t is? Have you come across the popular "mxeid wrods" meme / post?
I understand "txtspk" and "mxeid wrods" but what does "l33t" mean?
