    Re: grammer

    A very complicated question, subject to whole books of responses, which will all boil down to rules that no one pays any attention to.

    A much easier, and more pressing, item of attention is the proper spelling of grammar. The only Grammer we know of is an actor (Kelsey Grammer), whom the rest of the world can now hold responsible for mis-teaching people how to spell.

    Re: grammer

    There are many explanations for the differences between shall and will, but the important thing to remember is this: You can have long conversations with any native English speaker without ever saying or hearing the word shall. If you were in a store in New York, New South Wales, Newfoundland or Newcastle, and you told the clerk, "I shall use my credit card," he would probably look at you like you had two heads.

    If you are driven by curiosity, look here Shall and will - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia for a comprehensive explanation.
