English Grammar - Do you still do it...

5 posts in this topic

A short while ago, I posted a thread about squirrels. 

During that post I was using a word which used the, " 'i' before 'e' except after 'c' rule".

 

It occurred to me that I still quoted the rules mentally now, at least 60 years after!

I use my times tables and grammar 'rules' all the time!

 

Do you?

A large number of children these days are unable to speak properly, never mind read or write.
