It's privilege

not priviledge.

Just saying.

grr

And while we're at it, y-o-u-r your is a possessive pronoun. y-o-u-apostrophe-re- (you're) is you-are. Implying an action.

Your grammar sucks.
You're welcome.

aarghhh.


P.S: This post is an awesome idea to vent my pet issues on matters of the written word. Watch out for regular updates. :-) And feel free to add your own.

>>British Indian doctors' body gets new head<<
If you miss the nuance of the apostrophe, you'll be wondering for ever :)

Gandhi... not Ghandi... now repeat 100 times... Gandhi. Write Gaandhi if you have to...

OK that was my rant against media and various other people.

Football, not soccer (that's another one, but considerably harder to justify and based on personal preference and completely shallow thoughts).
