    Re: incorrect words used

    You've posted enough times now. What do YOU think? Why? What words can you show are used incorrectly?

    (I have to say that iii is wrong to my American ears, but it may be right in other dialects.)
    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.
