HI! I would hate to learn English as a 2nd language. What a mess!! I have a hard enough time keeping it straight as my 1st,.. and I wanted to be a writer for a while!! Or at least write one book for my mom. Anyway, glad to see some people do STILL care about the correct language spelling and the importance it has. I have a great feeling Craig will grow up with a beautiful vocabulary and get "A's" on his spelling! Big Smiles!
Report as
Aww, thanks, Merlin. = ) Wow.
Yes, they say English is one of the hardest languages to learn. I think that I am also glad it's my first language! :)

There are so many rules, and rules that exempt the others. Ex: "i" before "e" expect after "c." A, E, I, O. U, and sometimes Y! What's up with the "Y???" Probably because all accepted words must have a vowel. One of the hardest for me is affect and effect. I think affect is a verb. I remember its "a" for action when used as a verb. The "e" is used when it's used as a noun. Is that right? Truly! I"m asking. Is that how it goes?
Report as
You are correct. :)
You DO get the Y thing, don't you?
Report as
Thank you! Happy! Happy! (the duet of the happy's used to be my tattoo when I joined a long time ago. I didn't know how to make smiley faces, but still wanted to let people know I agreed and cared about their suggestions. I know how to make the smiley face now, but still use Happy, Happy when sharing with people I consider friends. :) ) Now, back to the "Y." All words must have a vowel; however, in the ever changing and shortening of words, sometimes the vowel got dropped because of the speech patterns. The "Y" is a perfect expample. The word "why." See, we all except this a prominent word in our vocabulary, yet, we don't just write the letter "Y." A goofy thing the English language does to keep us all guessing. this is "why" I would think Phonics it a fabulous way to learn in theory, but not very good to learn in spelling. Words with dbl. vowels, like keep, peep, sneak, feast don't hold the same phonic rule. Spelling is a "beast" all amongst itself! :)
Report as
is that correct?? This is kind of cool for me! Having you help me! I feel like I'm talking to my Grandma. I mean this in the most respectful and rewarding way to you. She taught English. So, thanks, in advance for helping me understand the ever so changing language! :)
Report as
Hah! A lot of texters, and young people, in particular, do just use the "word" y. (but of course they do) :|
I have no idea of your age, though you do not seem like a teenager, that's for sure, but yes, I (we?) were taught that all words must have a vowel. Do you know, there are actually plenty of words that do NOT have a vowel? (and I'm not even talking that have a Y in them) It's just crazy.
I tried to learn something about you from your profile, but you're sure remaining mysterious! = )
Report as
Oh wow. I believe I'm flattered, yes, I am, but I hope I'm not as old as your grandma. ;)
I am sorry----what exactly are you asking me is correct?
I am glad to try to help you. I have always been a grammar and spelling freak. :)

I will be happy to share with you. I joined Ask in October 2011 as MerlinNme. (My chosen name is a funny story within itself.) Recently, my desktop crashed. My loving sister bought me this laptop. In order to keep my long time friends (known as followers on Ask) I kept my Merlin name and added a 2. (I mistakenly capitolized the M in me this time.) I would love to tell you all, but in a wrap: I love the dynamics of the Earth and am intrigued by all living creatures, large and small. The ocean and the sun are my favorite places to be and weather to absorb. Luckily I live where both of those occur daily. I am 46 and have been Truly and Happily married for 17 years. I like to garden and have an appreciation for flowers. I'm O.K. at drawing & painting,.. but not as good as I would like. I love my husband. I adore All animals, fish included, and my family I wouldn't trade for all the tea in China. My friends are very select, but I many aquiantances that are important to me. Above and beyond all that I place judgement on no one and try to help where and when I can. :)

I hate when people ask "How do I loose weight" So I guess "lose" might be the most annoying for me.

Hi. It's not just one word. It's the blatant fact no one spells out anything. Most are in such a hurry to "text" the next person, they don't even take the time to write out " I love you." My concerns are around the written language, as I understand it, becoming obsolete. A complete sentence, needing a noun & a verb will not longer matter. Everything will be acronyms. With that being said, I don't mind other people sp. mistakes,. but my own are atrocious! I have had trouble spelling tomorrow, definitely, etc. all my life. I also have problems with words like: non the less. I can't remember if it's hyphenated or all one word or 3 separate words! My sincerest apologies. When I get on a train of thought, my fingers don't go in the right directions. My mind is already ahead. Have a great morning and a neat question! :)
