Mensagem:  Hey Sid,

I know there is a lot of linguistic prejudice going on both on spoken and written English as well.

Since I am not a native speaker, I just feel really interested in understanding how far I can get. I love studying lgg idiosyncrasies, formal and informal registers, RPs (versus cockney, pikey), collocations, appropriateness and so forth.

It´s funny how I tend to always (at least) try to be on safe side of the fence so that no "mistakes" (watch the quotes, please) are deliberately made. Also, after majoring in modern languages, i.e., English, I know the concept of "right" and "wrong" are pretty debatable.

I just learn so much and have so much fun here. 

Thank you once again for all the great posts and feedback. 

Bestest regards, (LOL)



p.s.: JUST OUT OF CURIOSITY...

is there any clues to tell apart a Canadian from an American when it comes to speaking? I just can´t say who´s who when I listen to recordings / radio programs, for example. It seems to me that the spelling is the BrE way, but are there remarkable differences in speech?
