    foto or photo??

    I know for sure that "photo" is correct but as I can see "fotos" is also used. Do we use it correctly is it American english or is it a word influenced from German language or another language?

    Re: foto or photo??

    I suggest it's influenced by the same wave that gives us "wut" and "dat" and "ne1" for what, that, and anyone - i.e., texting.

    Don't use it.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Perhaps it's also associated with Spanish-speaking Americans...
