Grammar. It's the difference between knowing your sh*t and knowing you're sh*t....

 

 

No. 

 

 

 

 

Your sense of humour appears to have deserted you today. Full marks for being concise though.

Honestly, it seems like online posters are pretty rebellious folk. So much defiance!

I can't say aluminum or most Maori words so I fail and am banished from this contest before it even started.

 

 

That's ok, you got kicked out by the spelling week, as that's not how you spell aluminium ;)

 

And where's your macron?

 

 

It depends.

I'm not sure whether a week would be sufficient for me ...

 

 

 

Nevertheless I'm a generous German: if you find my mistakes, you can keep them. wink





Nope, English isn't my mother tongue. But that's why I'm here. smile

When it comes to pronunciation, my current bugbear is people (notably, my wife) who pronounces "mischievous" as "mischeeveeous" (adding an "i" before the "ous").  It's funny (grating) when she's reading to our kids and I have to bite my tongue to avoid muttering "mischievous" when she mispronounces it.

 

For her part, though, she likes to tease me for saying "somethink" instead of "something" - apparently an Auckland think/thing... ;)
