Website: English for Runaways
« on: July 21, 2006, 07:47:47 PM »
What is a "Runaway" in this context

This is from a German book about the English language. The pun only works if you have a good understanding of the German language and average understanding of the English language.


Uhh.. ok, what is the website?

The website about common errors in English can be found here.

It's a rather big list, so I cannot resist to think that errors per se are a common thing in English. Nonetheless, I think this is perfect for flamewars that have turned into discussion about orthography. Or, you could use to look things up if you are not sure about certain terms.

It is a useful site, so use it!
