Are they of better quality than your spelling and capitalization?

Now before everyone jumps all over me. I have an issue with those who seem so determined to destroy the english language. My comment does not apply to anyone for whom, English is not the primary language.

Crash,
It's called "TXT" (text) and it what the kids use on Instant Messages and on the cell phones.
If I can't read it I don't answer it.

Ahh crash, I must jump all over you with this and recommend a good book to you. Check out Richard Lederer's Anguished English series. These will have you in stitches for sure. 😀

It's also the reason they can't develop the language skills needed to get a decent job when/if they graduate.

I'll just ignore such posts.

Insight, your totally correct with spelling.

For New Zealand,

Color=Colour
Center=Centre
Mom=Mum

And so on...

The metric system should become the default system as well 😀.

Well thats my opinion,
Jarred. 🙂

P.S. No offence to Americans. 😛

Thinks will be much much easier if Greek was the International language...Greek language is such an easy to learn that the only language we can compare with is....Chinese... 😉 😉 😉

Although i have heard that Greeks has lost for one vote from England when countries vote about the international language.
Maybe rummors that made from loosers... 😉

I put myself in the first places of thoses who serves a lot of pearls in language issues...

In Argentina they taught British English and since them I used to speak like a British. Then I moved to the US and learned more English there. Now I live in Portugal and I finished High School in an American School. So basically, I'm now used to the American English. I can speak or write like a British, if I want, but since I'm used to American English I usually speak and write like an American.

Although British English is a term used when describing formal written English used in the United Kingdom, the forms of spoken English used in the United Kingdom vary considerably more than in most other areas of the world in which English is spoken, even far more than in the United States, despite the vastly larger population and land area of the U.S. Dialects and accents vary not only within regions of the UKófor example, in Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Walesóbut also within England, with differences occuring within the space of a few miles in some cases. The written form of the language as taught in schools is universally Commonwealth English with a slight emphasis on a few words which might be more common in the specific areas than others. For example, although the words "wee" and "small" are interchangable, one is more likely to see "wee" written by a Scot than by a Londoner.

Although spoken American and British English are generally mutually intelligible, there are enough differences to occasionally cause awkward misunderstandings or even a complete failure to communicate. George Bernard Shaw once said that the United States and United Kingdom are "two countries divided by a common language"; a similar comment is ascribed to Winston Churchill. Henry Sweet predicted in 1877 that within a century, American English, Australian English and British English would be mutually unintelligible, but it may be the case that increased world-wide communication through radio, television, the Internet, and globalization has reduced the tendency to regional variation. This can result either in some variations becoming extinct (as, for instance, truck has been gradually replacing lorry in much of the world) or in the acceptance of wide variations as "perfectly good English" everywhere.

In addition to its use in English-speaking countries, English plays an important role as a technical language around the world, in medicine, computer science, air traffic control, and many other areas of concentrated expertise and formal communication among international professionals.

I confess that I hadn't thought about the differences between the language as used on opposite sides of the pond. I suppose that differences in language of people that are in different regions is inevitable. That is why there are two spell check libraries, one for British English and the other for American English.

What I was objecting to is the intentional destruction of language by people who are addicted to a constant barrage of mindless blather sent via instant messaging and cell phones.

A little know fact the metric system was designated as the offical system for the United States right after the split from the England. It never caught on as of large amount of trade with England which was not metric at the time. 🙂

I suspect the US will go metric when the oil companies lead the charge in an effort to confuse the average moron as to what he is really paying for gasoline.

I don't know who originated the metric system, my guess would be the Greeks, Romans or Arabs.
It seems evident however that the metric system has been around for a while and it should by now have been adapted worldwide.

There are no Pros and Cons... only Pros.

Look at global statistics and you'll find that the average person living in a country where the metric system is used has a much better grasp of the principle of percentages. - Obviously. -

On a dayly basis we are being brainwashed by the media with meaningless figures and numbers. Those numbers are meaningless because they are presented out of context.

Context- concerning numbers and figures becomes clear and managable by applying percentages.
To divorce percentages from the metric system is like cutting off your own head Twisted Evil

Thanks for that lkw, I wasn't aware of that. The metric system does seem to be a more simple concept to learn, as basically all you have to do is add or remove 0's.

But then again, for persons that are already adapted to the original system, it would take a while to adjust.

What's the big deal? In the US we just dropped the use of selected consecutive vowels from UK English. -Won't comment on the right or wrong of it. -Just the way it turned out. Some Brits tend to be more particular about split infinitives and prepositions placed at the end of a sentence. Those rules came from Latin and have little relevance in English. Sir Winston Churchill put to rest the "preposition cannot end a sentence rule" with his famous rejoinder that placing the preposition at the end of a sentence is "something up with which we will not put!" --Having said these things, I myself am not one who lends himself to questioning the countenance of Sir Winston Churchill.

-Just my personal thought on the subject gents and of course I could be wrong.

-OG. 🙂
