I have been thinking lately of the things that my fingers do when writing that my brain knows is wrong, but I still want to do them anyway. Let's face it, the English language is all sorts of confusing, but if I ruled the world, I would change the following:
1. Who decide to switch spacing after sentences from two spaces to one? I try to stinkin' hard to remember to only use the thumb once, but when two spaces after a sentence was pounded into my brain, that is a hard dent to get back out.
2. I really want even though to be one word. Look - eventhough. It even looks a little pretty. I don't know why, but every time I type that word, I forget the space. Same goes for kind of - just should be kindof. Not kinda - kindof.
3. A little more on the scholarly side, but why can't all the smart people of the world get together and determine that they all want X,Y and Z information and we can just all format it that way instead of messing with MLA, APA, Chicago, etc....
Your turn - what things of the English language can you just not convince your brain is wrong?
