I never would have guessed it pore. Would have assumed pour like your are putting yourself completely into something.

Past and Passed bug me from time to time too. "Drove passed the house." "Drove past the house." I believe past is correct but I don't like it at all.

Of course it's "past" not "passed". And "pore" means getting into a reading or details of something. Is English your first language MrTalos?

Because English is such a blatantly methodical and intuitive language, right? Smiley: rolleyes

Other poster: "No, your English sucks!"

That is what the ffxiv forums have resorted to these days >_<;

It is my first and only language (unless you count pig Latin). I know bits and pieces of a few others but not enough to carry any meaningful conversation.

I don't think I've ever used pore or pour in a written sentence pertaining to reading so if I did know that it was pore and not pour 20+ years ago, it had long since been forgotten. I said I didn't like the deal with past and passed. It's just another example of how complex languages are and how sometimes they really don't need to be. I never said it was wrong.

I also believe we are living in a world that is putting less and less emphasis on grammar (or spelling for that matter) and instead focuses on successfully conveying understanding. What was once reserved for fitting information on to license plates, is now becoming the norm for human communication.

And that is a gross generalization but I see it all too often. Not to mention, I am just talking about something that has nothing to do with anything but when I am at work, you guys are the only people I can have a "meaningful" conversation with. Smiley: grin
