    Oh ok then yes I don't mind your March one ... I suppose ...



    My DD does this. It's so cute. Not in the `and I' context but just uses `I' where she should say `me'.

    This morning she said `Look at I, Mummy!'. But then hey, she's only 2.5 and can say sentences like `Mummy, when I went to the beach with Granny yesterday we saw a lizard, and it scared us a bit. Actually, it scared us a lot'.

    So, yanno, I'm not too worried!!

    No, I certainly wouldn't worry about that! However I do worry when my son is self-conscious about writing it correctly in his homework because he knows that his teacher thinks it's a rule that one should never use "and me".

    There's no page, it's just me writing random tips up near my avatar. I'm anal enough about this that I keep a list on my iPhone that I hope one day to turn into a book. No-one will buy it, but I will have had my say.

    ahhh i see. or, as dp would say, my see. dunno what it is with her putting an 'm' on the beginning of things.. she'll say things like 'my back' for 'i'm back' as well. not all the time, just enough to be really annoying!

    I find I notice spelling mistakes, know that they are "wrong" but don't know how to spell it correctly. Irks me because I am eternally frustrated and can't fix it!

She said she nearly flipped her lid at all of the people saying cassel because she believes its the other way! They did a poll though and it seemed split down the middle, and the lecturer said it really just comes down to dialect. Even knowing that though, it still makes me cringe everytime I hear it!
    My DH is from the north of England and he uses a few phrases that are regionally accepted terms but are grammatically incorrect. My personal favourite is "She were going" instead of "She was going" and "We was going" instead of "We were going."

    She is a shocker.

    What was it the George from Masterchef kept saying incorrectly?

    BTW the Ford oh-ten car ad kills me. It is 2010 or just 10.
