Spelling Errors?Follow

I know that this is beta and all, and that the game is in multiple languages. And I know I'm definitely not the best speller. But I've been noticing quite a few grammar and spelling errors with the NPCs.

One shop npc say "here" twice in Uldah (eastern stretch of npc shops).

Corguevais in a cutscene says, "I cause so troble fo so many."

One npc says "well come" instead of "welcome". I believe it's the coliseum npc.

Linette during one of the cutscenes (same cutscene with Corguivais) says "our investigations indicate that the majority of the interlopers are those from without the city"

F'lhaminn in the same cutscene as Linette and Corguevais "I think it's safe to say that nobody will listen to a word him has to say. You there, <character>. Await me at the Gate of Nald..."

I've noticed a few others but I didn't take note.

So has anyone else spotted errors? Not trying to be negative, I just find interest in errors that are spotted in games.

Maybe I'm not reading some of the stuff in the same context.

Edit: On a different note, I almost fell out of my chair in regards to the 2 lalafell miner npcs during a cutscene for the Uldah story. Trying not to spoil it :/

Also editing to add more as this entire cutscene is full of them lol.

Yeah, there seems to be a few dialogue mistakes here and there. I sometimes get some Japanese characters in any given body of text.

Report 'em all, better that we snicker at them now and get them fixed than to have the general public deal with them.

This means those from "outside" the city. Without, as in not within. This one isn't a spelling error but there are a few I have noticed while playing.

This also isn't an error, its just a style of dialogue...i'm assuming you're looking at "..a word him has to say"...don't think its an error.

The one I did notice was "Quicksan" and more obviously the "[en]" and japanese characters.

The "without" one just reads weird to me. I didn't really think it wrong so much as kind of an awkward wording.

Momodi dialogue for part of the Some Like It Hot quest line:
"Maybe know you see why the rest of Eorzea thinks us over-indulgent."

Its common in movies set in older eras such as Gladiator or A knight's Tale...I don't know if they actually use the word in that context but its used often in dialogue like that.

There's a part in Gridania where the NPC says "treant" in one sentence, and "trent" in the following. All in the same dialogue box, referring to the same thing.
