Subject: RE: Some common departures from STANDARD ENGLISH
Thanks for the tips. I found out that I do spell Tendinitis incorrectly.
Anyway, I've noticed a few people on this board use language differently from me. For example, I would write:
The car is dirty and needs to be washed.
Others might write:
The car is dirty and needs washed.
I had never heard the latter until recently. I'm from Los Angeles. My ex would use the second form. She's from Pittsburgh. A poster on this site also used the second form.
Which way do you all use and where did you grow up?
