@Lurker, at the risk of being put on Santa's naughty list ...

"English" is a proper noun ;)

LOL. This is a rule of the Internet. Don't correct someone's grammar or spelling because you are going to make a mistake yourself.

This is suitable to cover one’s grammatical faux pas. Print it out wallet sized.

Me too. That and mis-pronouncing “nuclear.” To me, that is worse than the sound of fingernails on the blackboard.

"English" can also describe spin on a billiard ball...and that's AFAIK, lowercase.

My personal bugaboo? When people pronounce "height" as "highth" instead of "hite". There's no "th" at the end of height, unlike length and width.
Also when they say "I-Ran" and "I-Rack" instead of "Ear-ran" and "Ear-rack".

(then there's the Brits who can't say "jaguar" correctly--"Jag-you-are" instead of "Jag-ware")

Realty ranks up there with nuclear for me. It grates.

Yeah, we've been through that with Lurker. Last time we gave him a hard time about it, he posted everything in all caps for at least a week. Please don't rile him up! ;)

They are pronounced with either “ee” or “eh”, not “eye”.

And it’s “rock” not “rack”.

I do like the fact that Lurker has inherited this thread by default since we nuked the spammer from orbit.... Gives me a warm fuzzy.

Thanks for the minor correction--I concede that! :thumbup:

Glad we've abandoned the trite, shallow issues of the day and are addressing something deep and serious! :roflmao:
