I dasn't dish the English language too much but I think a common grammer is fast disappearing. Ever hear a TV reporter adlib? Remember when we used to diagram sentence structure in school?
There is serious talk about not even teaching script writing anymore. And its not only us and its not only grammer. Half the young people in England cant tell you what war the "Battle of Brittian" was fought.
But ask those same people what LOL means.....then ask them what a dangling participle is....
