It seems pretty stupid, and what do you call real Public schools, you know, the one's that are for the general public ?

Hardly anyone refers to private schools as public schools IMO, its usually state and private.

edit: also that ^^^

I thought, though may be wrong that it goes back further. Historically, schools were run for the elusive use of a certain family, eg for a King's children, or a noble man's children. A public school were the first schools setup where anyone could in theory go, though they still cost a lot of money.

Nobody knows.

We do this because we're English, and we know how to use the language. Unlike all the foreigners who bastardise it because they can't speak it properly

Ha!!


Americans speak a more correct form of English to us Brits. Their English stems much more strongly from the English of the 17th/18th centuries than our language does, as ours became bastardised thanks to our redonculous empire.

Hence why they spell words like "color" and "honor" correctly.

I'm sorry, are you even from the Home Counties?

Forgive me, but why would anyone listen to the words of a peasant such as yourself? Go start a rebellion.

Linguistically this makes no sense whatsoever. The fact you speak a form of English that is (in some areas) more similar to earlier Modern English doesn't make your form more proper. If you want to take that route then American English is just as un-English as RP, and the real English language should be traced to certain dialects found in the North of England and several of the islands around Britain.

If you don't, then RP is 'correct' English, as it is the standard form of English.

Just because names of organisations, groups or institutions don't always mean what they are.
