What school did he go to? by raistlin

I'm not normally a spelling / grammar pedant.

Firstly, because in general terms, if I can understand the meaning then where's the harm?

Secondly, I would lay myself open to ribald, sarcastic comment should my own grammar / spelling be incorrect and trust me, it would happen sooner rather than later. :lol:

However, today, I received a written report explaining why one of my students, a young commissioned officer with a post graduate university background, was unable to hand in an assignment on time and asking for an extension.

The explanation was complex but included a claim of illness, specifically "stomick ake".

Luckily, his understanding of fluid dynamics seems to far outweigh his command of language. :lol:

Cogito ergo sum... maybe?

It seems that nowadays grammar and spelling does not matter aided by 'text speak' slowly infiltrating written English.

A large number of listings on eBay can make one despair of modern education in addition to US English taking hold.
