FRUSTRATED WITH THE ENGLISH USAGE

I was just on Facebook this afternoon and saw a comment on Darryl Davis.  I cringed on people using “would of”.  I think they meant “would’ve” or “would have”.  Then another comment says “Thank you for your guideness.”  What is that?  Is that a new word?  I looked it up in the dictionary and there is no such thing.  My native tongue is not English and when I see unusual English usage, I look them up and cannot stand poor English usage and spelling.  I think we should learn how to write.  No wonder we are slowly deteriorating as a world class leader.  Where are the nuns at the Catholic School?  They will teach you how to write.

Rosalinda: The one I cringe at is when news people use sentences that are way out like "take a listen" - what is that all about? As to spelling, I see blogs from people who call themselves very professional yet they can't spell. Not just one or two typos. English is my 3rd language so I'm very conscious of this.

Rosalinda, I also went to Catholic School.  Spelling and grammar mistakes were not acceptable.    Unfortunately too many of our children are growing up with spell check instead of a dictionary.
