    Alternate meaning by what I read. Besides I have to wonder why your teachers don't correct you when you start these "kustom" spellings at school. Surely they realise that your obsession with using z all over the place will have a wider impact. Especially in that country full of lambs.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Apostrophization gets tricky (although commaziation is just as bad).

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    So you realise that MBTI is not 100% but think that language is?

    Have you missed your afternoon coffee out? I'd suggest tea but I'd doubt you'd know what it is... well actually it's doubtful you have a proper afternoon at all with all this non GMT nonsense too but I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt there.

    (Nasty intuitive thought that this thread is getting split somewhere around the time the national slurs started...)

    The thread split is fine with me, naturally, since I possess a logical, efficient, American mind.

    See.. you're still messing up those words aren't you. Mind you I don't mind. Being a real NT I can soon filter out all the tosh you were subjected to whilst being brought up as a nice lil' ESTJ at school.

    Perhaps when we reconquer your island we can help out by handing out dictionaries to the schools. It's a way off at the moment but you should still be in high school by the time it happens.

    The way I understand it, our Brittish ancestors brought plenty of antiquated dictionaries over. Upon reaching the Promised Land, basking in the glorious natural environment, and freedom, they realized it was they who were destined to improve the greatest language the world has ever known.

    Oh Grammar, you slay me! I know not the ever changing rules of your sweet utility, but long for the days when thou werest mine. Grammar! Come nestle in my bosom once more, as in days of ol'.


    ^That's apostrophisation, no?
