    I've also noticed the $ thing too! It's like they think you write the $ last because that's how you say it (eg fifty dollars).

    Ooh that really gets to me too! I drove past a car yard last week which displayed a security sign advising, "Your on camera!" (grrr!)

    There is a test on Facebook, I think is called "There, Their, They're", which tests the basic rules like when to use "two, to, and too" and I was disgusted to discover that I was the only one to ace it, amongst about 30 of my friends who tried it.

    All appears quiet in the world of spelling and grammar. You must all be off planking or making lasagna or something.

    Hey there's one! I usually spell it 'lasagne' but my iPhone just autocorrected to 'lasagna'. Which is correct?

    UK spelling is "lasagne". US spelling is "lasagna". Kind of like colour vs color.

    I think you're right in that americans call it lasagna, but actually lasagna is the singular form, lasagne is the plural. :d

    I never knew that, thanks MrsBeee.
    Is this also true for "fettuccini" and "fettuccine"?
