Congratulations! Why be boring...
English isn't boring. Entirely flexible and inventive. Though as with so many systems, you have to understand the "proper" before you can subvert, parody and play around with it.

English is not boring...no language is.

Pedants are.

Of the pair of us, Mr Rufus is the nice one. I'm the other one. What on earth are you getting at? Ah, unless you took the pronoun I used to be personal rather than universal second person. Meh.

Meh, indeed. I did not, no worries. Nor do I think all English teachers are pedantic, no need to look for that in my post

Where is Mr. Hammer, btw, and why would he think one has to be English here..English, Islandic, whatever - we are all one big happy family here

Um, considering you've been an EF member since April last year and have made 45 posts I think you know the answer.
Ummm, I was born in the borough of London and still don't know the answer apparently

Guess I'll just stick with the little red one out of simplicity

It says English Forum on the tin so if you are not English, bugger off!

That includes the Irish, Scotch and Welsh!
