    Default Question asked twice.

    In my search for why I use part of the English language and not all of it. I seem to get the ungrammer right but I do not understand why. Please read my post unstructed English and tell me why I do this? It is extremely extremely important to me. Thank you. Paul/pljames

    Nobody could ever use all of the English language- even the most educated user will only use a tiny part of it- a language has to be able to express everything every member of the speech com unity wishes to express.

    If a post isn't answered, then open the post and add a reply with <bump> in it, which will bring it back to the top. I'm afraid posts come in so fast that the lists fill quickly and some posts get missed.

    Tdol,
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have made my day, week, year. I was beginning to think that I was different when it came to communicating. You do not know how you have raised my ego from a gain of sand to a large beach. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
