Post examples of things that bug you about different dialects/accents of the language you speak. These aren't things that are necessarily incorrect (in that dialect, accent) but still make you squeamish.

It really bugs me when

              Pronounciation more than grammar, but when people say 'barth' and 'carstle' instead of 'bath' and 'castle'.

              It makes no sense to me.

              YO Innit! Me and me Mum buzzin like and we going to da Theatre and it be well good


              Sorry

              In all seriousness though in england that is actually how we spell colour, favourite and theatre etc.

              and if it wasnt for us Brits you'd be speaking french or spanish or whatever
              If life gives you oranges, say "f*ck oranges" and bail.

              When people don't know how to use "there" "their" and "they're" in proper context.

              Bugs the **** out of me...

              It really bugs me when
              People don't say "the group are" or "the couple are"
              People don't end every other sentence with "innit"
              People don't say "this is well good"
              They don't write u's in "color" "favorite," etc.
              Words like "theatre" and "centre" are spelled with "er"
              People say "Mom" instead of "Mum"

              Init is common slang (well atleast where I'm from). Everyone says it and we can't all speak perfect English.

              plectrum instead of pick- there is nothing scientific about a rounded triangle

              people who say "wooter" instead of water.
              people say "boat" instead of boot.

              Well.. I don't really care so much, maybe cause I'm not from an English speaking country.. I agree that some Americans tend to **** up English though, nothing personal. But then again, maybe that's just what I hear from movies and tv

              I'm not saying that you spelling color, favorite, theater, etc. like that is wrong, it's just that I've grown up without the u so I'm more used to it.

              Also
              When people pronounce the word "tattoo" as "tah-ooh"
              Oh, and adding unnecessary r's into words. Like "lawr" instead of law" or "sawr" instead of a "saw" (although without that, we would have never gotten "Last week, I sawr a film, as I recall it was a horror film")

              And, of course, "could care less." Gaah.

              The
              he - him
              who - whom

              Answer your own question using he or him. EASY PEASY.

              Question: Whom does this pencil belong to?
              Answer : To him!

              So we use whom.

              Who did this?
              He did it.

              So we use who.

              Now tell everyone you know so that I never have to hear the wrong one used again.

              When I watched 24 and the planes had a near miss I yelled at the TV and said "Its a near hit!"

              My biggest annoyance in grammar is on Facebook and people don't take the "is" off their status if it doesn't need to be there. Ex; "John is She dont lik me so i cry myself 2 sleep."

              I remember in Biology this year someone wrote on the board "Ms. Willis's is the best teacher." Half way into the lecture I got up and had to erase the 2nd "s" or I would have gone crazy.

              I remember in Biology this year someone wrote on the board "Ms. Willis's is the best teacher." Half way into the lecture I got up and had to erase the 2nd "s" or I would have gone crazy.

              German actually

              English was chosen as the "national language" by a vast majority of... oh wait
              1 vote.


              but still, I actually agree with you there. I dont know why people in the USA changed the spelling of some words.
              But I guess it's not entirely the same language.
              They're just really damn close, haha


              and I do have a tendacny to type Theatre and not Theater.


              English, a language of exceptions

              Don't you just love it? haha

              well that happens with almost every country. In Mexico we have different use of grammar or spelling. i.e "mira estas muy grande" and in Argentina they say "mira que grande que estas" Spain in the other hand say this "Pero mira que grande estais"

              see???
