You know, I'm French, and I try to write correct English... frankly, the bad spelling that happens here is NOTHING compared to the anime forums I used to administer !

Different target public I guess. I've banned more than a few for SMS-style forum posts, heh, heh.

Chris, EC is safely away for the weekend. So I can ask the next question without fear of his mighty grump.

peufeu, I'm actually sort of fascinated by how one might text in French. Could you tell me a few of the common abbreviations?

First level of brain damage is : replace everything with phonetics (ie. for instance in French the sound [k] can be written "c", "k", "q", "qu" etc ; replace all this with letter k) ; remove all letters that are not pronounced ; drop tenses, plurals and genders ; randomize word suffixes and abbreviate :

donc -> dc, pour -> pr, pourquoi -> pk, g = j'ai, etc

Bijour G juste un pb, g eu un ratio de merde, g dc du pr le remonter utiliser mon joker afin de SEEDER... Bref mon pb est le suivant: G réussi à prendre un one piece tt simple mai à la suite meme kan je supprime ce torrent, aucun autre ne veut se lancer je capte pas pk!!!! g bo eu lire ds les forums g pa trouvé le meme pb ke moi... Bref ke puis-je faire kan Bitcomet ne veut prendre kun seul torrent de ce site????
Now this isn't really SMS, this is really verbose, since the moron has a real keyboard there are still a few words left. Also he went to the trouble of capitalizing the "G", lol. (in Engrish this would be like writing "Uve got").

Then there is the next level of moronicity, like when you see the above post and kick the user he may write this :

He's saying that it's his right to write gibberish, etc. It's like a plea to get banned. Usually it works.

Ah, I see! Freedom from reprisals!

Hi peufeu,
I guess that means that in 10 years, the written word will be as useful as Latin. Babylon will have been created!

This is frightening. Most Danes/Scandinavians I've had the pleasure of meeting speak English that is far more grammatically correct than the esturine drivel spouted by most "native English" speakers in the UK, certainly in my part of the world (Kent).

I may be becoming rabid in my declining years (I'm over 40 and live near Tunbridge Wells) but even though I had my South London (Saarf Lunnon) accent beaten out of me at school and replaced by Received Pronunciation (a very "correct" form of English, akin to what used to be called "Queen's" or "BBC" English), my children speak a foreign dialect that is quite appalling - whatever I and my wife (a language teacher) have tried, we've obviously failed. However, I accept it in exchange for a peaceful family life ;-)

So, if you want "correct" English, I'd speak to a native of Holland or similar!

The title of this thread:

"Spelling, capitalization, and grammar."

One too many commas.
