"she shouldn't of went" hm, I just heard this on TV. It makes me shiver. Or, "I brung your car back" and why is "winner" pronounced the same way as "winter"?
All the years I was tortured by me English teacher to use correct grammar and pronounciation, and then I come to America and hear the locals speak like that???

If you hear someone with an accent, the grammar is mostly correct, because in other countries, grammar is very important if you are taught another language. Unfortunately the older one is, the harder it is to loose the accent.

There are several vocal exercises to start losing your accent. Look into it.

After reading the 15 pages, my question was not answered... :yes:
I read some really funny comments, it was totally worth it! :unsure:


Is it
  • "a_ (by using P2P applications) infected user"
or
  • "an (by using P2P applications) infected user" ???



Thanks in advance :)

Errr the 'h' in hotel isn't silent, or we'd all be talking about our stays in otels...

Thanks for the heads up! :)




AN infected.

So the (...) is negated when determining the a / an?



Thank you both for the quick explanations! Posted Image
