  • Mood:


Hello there, I just thought I'd come and introduce myself (though sadly I'm not bringing an assortment of examples in which the English language has been butchered beyond recognition). Anyway, I'm Rosie, seventeen, and live in the north of England. I don't have that much to say about myself except that I'm currently taking an A Level in English language (and that my manic use of parentheses is almost alarming at times).

One thing I do have to say is that, in regards to 'net speak' (you know, the whole 'howz u? i iz gr8' thing...) you can remedy it somewhat just by setting an example. It's true to a certain extent; I refuse to lower the level of my spelling to fit in, so now other people seem to feel the need to type correctly. I can (but shan't) name about five people who've I reckon I've influenced by this in some way. (Either that or everyone has gained a subtle sense of humour and is making fun of me over this, although I hope that isn't the case!)

Just thought I'd share that with you, since without it, my introduction sort of seems a bit thin.


(oh, and those avatar things a while back - the 'I'm going to have to beat you in the name of grammar' ones, or something like that, are great! Mind if I borrow for personal use, i.e. for use on my LJ icon?)
