Gidday highbrows. You may have noticed my ability to write in a colourful way. The description colourful is my way of covering up my poor standard in writing skills. It has been a long time since I opened an English text book. I found this site to help in my wish to be more adept.
However the most common error in the use of English is this: The use of words to convey ideas.
I reckon the Monty Python boys had it right. We would be better off using semaphore most of the time as English clearly doesn't work.
Just look at the mess in the English speaking world at present.
