I agree, HH. Those of us who had an old-fashioned education learnt to use language correctly, but education has changed and the 'rules' are not taught in the same way. It is true that language keeps on changing, too, and some things are now acceptable. Like you, Sue, I find some things intensely irritating. An example is 'anymore' instead of 'any more' - yet the computer spellcheck wants 'anymore.' I'm not an English teacher, though. I expect I make mistakes myself.
