People will get angry at you for it, but people will always be there to defend you for it Dont you want to say FINALLY well because technically both are correct. Give it another couple of decades, and it may be gone forever.
Do you think this is an example of language constantly changing, which I Sexy Women in Camden AL.
Adult Dating could reasonably be claimed given the number of times I hear it in a week? Or are they getting it wrong and therefore should be corrected? However, they are the source of language change and, when adopted by enough people wsnt people with power they are considered legitimate language changes. Can you tell me where this is? Should you correct them? At the very least, they should know the more standard meaning of the word lend. People should have access to that so that they can be best wabt by others outside their immediate social groups, and also so that they have more opportunities for social advancement.
But explain to them, too, that wamt school it has a different meaning and you want them to use that meaning for Dont you want to say FINALLY.

And that really makes me sad. Cassie How funny. A very good friend of mine, an English teacher, used to tell me that there was no such thing as correct spelling, for precisely the Dotn reason — that language is constantly evolving. I told him this is completely ridiculous. I have also been told that as a Science teacher, I should ignore misspellings and grammatical errors as we should be focusing solely on the Science. However, my argument is that being able to communicate effectively is part of being a scientist, and if pupils are unable to do that then they are not being good scientists.
The British Government had a great idea in the 60s; they decided the best way of teaching English was to encourage pupils to write phonetically.
