GUEST,Sally BS: English grammar question (351* d) RE: BS: English grammar question 18 Aug 11


I am swept away by the sweepings from your minds.

I have been mystified by the sudden (to me) change in the word "strength". I heard it once, in something by a Canadian popular group, as "strenth" and now that seems to be a common usage. Did it leap the pond? How did it get here? Anyone know?

I notice, too, that on the WWW the old folks similar to myself go to "sites" (places) on the net, and the young folks go to "Sights" (something to see) instead. MHOP is that they simply didn't learn about sites early enough. Perhaps I am wrong.
