CarnySaur: I believe the headline should read "Apostrophe ban council reverses there decision after being threatened by Farker's".
TheShavingofOccam123: I'm all for getting rid of as many articles as possible. There are languages who don't use them. But my big complaint is with gender. It only complicates what is already a complicated tool.
picturescrazy: uttertosh: xanadian: reillan: So, let's add apostrophe's everywhere, like the Canadian's do.No, no no no no no. That is NOT what the Canadians do!...They add extra vowels & letters and shiat. "The alphabet is from 'a' to 'zed'". ZED??? "I think we should paint the house a different colour." ColoUr? Is it pronounced "kull-OWER" or "KULL-orr"?STOP DOING THATZee's dead baby. Zee's dead. (and for it to be kull-OWER it would have to be colouur, as the 'double-u' you used would change the pronunciation - Hear the difference in the pronunciation of flour and flower? No? You might just be American.Wait are you saying Canadians pronounce flour like fler?
ZAZ: The American street sign standard says "Word messages should not contain periods, apostrophes, question marks, ampersands, or other punctuation or characters that are not letters, numerals, or hyphens unless necessary to avoid confusion."
Psychopusher: imontheinternet: Is there a Comma Protection Society? If so, I think I may have found my calling.That depends. Are you for, or against the Oxford comma? Choose wisely.
ciberido: Why is it "I gave you an apple" but not "I gave you an money"? Why is it "I gave you an apple" but "I gave you a red apple"? Why did the article for apple change from "an" to "a"? When should I use "a", when should I use "an", and when no article?
andychrist420: ciberido: Why is it "I gave you an apple" but not "I gave you an money"? Why is it "I gave you an apple" but "I gave you a red apple"? Why did the article for apple change from "an" to "a"? When should I use "a", when should I use "an", and when no article?You use "an" when the next word starts with a vowel. That one's actually pretty simple.
