Example Why Americans Are Perceived to be Dolts
See if you can identify all the errors in this statement made by a man gushing on about how well the Queen of England speaks English.
"This one just seemed to ring of more dignity, more pomp and
circumstance, I think because we’re receiving a royal," he said. "It
brings a different tone to it. Just to hear the queen talk — perfect
English, perfect enunciation — you just can’t help but go ‘Ohhh.’"
And while I’m on a roll here, here is one of my greatest personal pet peeves: misusing the first person personal pronoun, as in, "her/him and I." It makes my skin crawl to hear a pastor make such a fundamental error when speaking!
