< doesn't feel very Moody right now.. < gotta go right now.

< thought it was fun posting with ^ earlier for a while. It's understandable if ^ will be busy during the holidays, a lot of people will probably be the same. < just hopes that ^ and everyone else can enjoy it, regardless as to whether they'll be here or not. :noel:

< has been playing Rayman 1 again the past hour, this game has aged so well, it just never gets old. :hap:

When < had first seen that statement in that quote collection of ^^'s, < was like "What how?".
That must be one of the greatest things that < has ever read.

Then there is the smoking statement that Lovemetal made which < finds so wrong(even When you say it out loud). It said that he would never do it stupidly. So that may mean he would rather Smoke the right way.

Lol. English Language can be amusing Sometimes. When someone immediately says something incorrect in their sentences. It automatically means something else which is misleading and hilarious. :fou:

The English language can still confuse a lot of us, making us say completely misleading things. It's so easy to jumble 2 words in the wrong order and then the entire sentence is just our of context. < knows some people have done that more than others, but it always amuses < to see. :P

< never actually looked at that, but on a quick glance one would easily think that "t" is an "l". Saying that though, "stupidily" isn't a word anyway. :fou:

< has fallen for stuff like that on numerous occasions though tbh, it's very easily done.

Ah, spelling error. That makes much more sense even though it doesn't anyway.

Most sentences sound awkward by simply just adding a word that doesn't serve a value as much as you think or even missing ONE word can deliver a HUGE impact on what you are trying to say.

Imagine telling your Girlfriend this:
"I like ice cream more than you."

When it is supposed to be this:
"I like ice cream more than you do."


Is it <? or does English have more Grammar and language rules to learn than the other languages.
We all understand the full stops and the other markings.

< thinks English really is one of the most complicated languages there is, especially with all those words which have multiple meanings. Because of that, it doesn't really translate into other languages too well and vice versa. For example, the word right means the direction, but it also means correct. This is why Jonster failed at sarcasm:

He said the direction right, because in French, that word doesn't mean correct. That's just one example though.

< doesn't think English is particularly complicated in that regard. No two languages will have exact bijections between their vocabularies, simply because they're used by different people living and working in different places and contexts. There are other ways in which English is horribly complicated though, like spelling

< always thought there were more phrases in English that aren't present in other languages, but then < doesn't know as much as ^ would about that.

< thinks what makes it even more complicated are the differences between US and UK English also.

A couple of examples are:

color > colour
realize > realise
canceled > cancelled

<'s parents always had a problem with < using the "American way" of spelling certain words But does it really matter which method to use? Honestly...

< Didn't really have a problem with the spelling. Because later on < has or wants to use a word in the essays that < has to write. Wait a minute, maybe < did because there was this "I before E except After C" rule that < wasn't putting in mind When < was younger.

When < was in <'s secondary original school at a younger age < always found Spanish a lot more fun to learn than English and that way < can Go on exploring all the different words, vocabulary and even clichés or sayings like "in the Nick of time" and others that you Don't hear people say everyday, which is interesting to <. The only Challenge was to know where the pronounciations like the curved line on top of a letter(< can't Remember what it is called). Because missing those things would make your sentence sound wrong. Speaking it was not very hard But writing it was a bit rough for <.
And the many Spanish tests that < had to take months ago this year, that was Definitely something < had to look out for.

< can Remember that someone in <'s class wrote this down:
"Mi mama y papa... (whatever)

He had the idea and the sentence was decent But those words were missing something.

"Mi mamá y papá...." My mother and father. Simple enough
"Mi Mama y papa.... " This means something entirely different.

But the thing is at least the other languages have different words and pronounciations for specific meanings of a particular word. It should not be very hard to confuse that then.

Not really, though < would rather it the UK way personally, because that's the way < learned. The problem is that smartphones and computers default to the US way, confusing people and making them think they've always spelled things wrong all their lives, as autocorrect tells them they're wrong.

< says the "I before E" rule is nonsense that should not be kept in mind. < says the word for symbols above letters is "diacritics", and < finds them a lot more useful than the silent letters and guessing games that go on in English.

< really doesn't understand why the schools teach kids that rule, as it clearly doesn't apply in all cases. < thinks that once a person gets used to spelling, they'll notice if a word is wrong by looking at it. < used to get mixed up with the "ie" in believe, but then < just thought "eve" goes at the end and it became clear.

It's gone to the stage where < just does so much typing that < knows if a word is wrong by looking at it, though that still doesn't stop autocorrect from changing stuff like it and is around for no reason. < should just disable it again, but either way, < usually uses the computer to post.

Well it seems to < that the rule will be stuck in our heads whether we like it or not. < can even recall cartoons(like Peanuts by Charles Shulz) introducing that rule as a song so from where we stand that may be even worse.

< finds that someone can be a lot stronger at English by simply just typing continually. Well, supposed to be, most of the time anyway..
< finds that we would use words on a computer that we wouldn't even use in a real live conversation.
