Can I have the keys to the outrage wagon, please?

BBC Link.

So, lecturer says we should accept bad spelling because he's tired of constantly having to tell thickos they've got it wrong? What an excellent idea, Mr Smith! And to extend the concept wider, the next time Payroll make an arrse of your salary, lets just accept that as what you should be paid all the time, eh?

Thought not, fucknuts.

I have had a thought (it happens from time to time) now its totally off the wall and a little bit controversial, how about we take these words and teach people how to spell them correctly. (I'm now going to spend ages checking the spelling of every word of this post)

He's a Uni lecturer, ergo he's a lazy cnut. Not having to correct spelling makes his life even easier; he's bound to suggest it.

A couple of items Phantom.

It's = it is.
Full stop at the end of setences. Punctuation there, not spelling I concede.

"Could do better."

Listened to him earlier - waste of oxygen -- so much for the benefits of a Uni education. I wonder if his GP's spelling is up to par - hate to think that he might get too much of something dangerous. Tosser.

Incidentally - did this University Lecturer sound like a "Sameface"?

European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications, rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five year phase plan for what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for short).



In the first year, "s" will be used instead of the soft "c". Sertainly, sivill servants will resieve this news with joy. Also the hard "c" will be replaced with "k". Not only will this klear up konfusion, but typwriters kan have one less letter.
There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced by "f". This will make words like "fotograf" 20 per sent shorter.

In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Government will enkorage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling.

Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent "e"'s in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go.

By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" by "z" and "w" by "v". During ze fifz year, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.

After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikultis and evrivon vil find it ezi tu understand ech ozer. Ze drem vil finali kum tru.

University students 'cannot spell'

Which perhaps means that eventually even the teachers won't be able to spell or use grammar correctly.

Maybe this is already happening. I read somewhere about a parent who was appalled that his child's homework came back with "should have crossed the road" crossed out by the teacher and replaced with "should of crossed the road"

If anyone wants to upset themselves any further I can recommend this

It's not all doom and gloom:

Linky

It seems there are still a few public figures prepared to stand up for basic grammar and spelling. The fact that the bloody lawyer couldn't spell in the first place is probably a bad sign, but having a judge call him on it makes a nice change. It reminds me of the debate we had the other week about people getting fat because they had no shame and people weren't prepared, or allowed, to bully them for it.

Is this judge now likely to be branded an intellectualist?

My father was a uni lecturer until he retired last year. He still used to routinely fail academically (in content terms) good pieces of work if the spelling and grammar were rubbish.

I would have thought that correcting mistakes is a large part of any teacher's work. If he had had his way during my formative years I wouldn't be able to call him a skyving cnut.
And if he had been better, you could have called him a skiving cnut!
