and words that start with a vowel, including y in some cases.
#2
vowels?

Yes it's vowels
a e i o and u
#4

Yes it's vowels
a e i o and u


And 'y'. (not a vowel)

It's actually quite easy to work out. If you say both in front of the word it's usually quite obvious which is right.
#5
an hour - silent H
#6
Is this some sort of code speak or should I go to bed?

Nobody says A hour:?
#9
rugger-tyke

ok, not always.....:whistling:

Easiest is just to say it like I said. You know when it's right. Well I do anyway.

Sorry I was meaning to say 'a' in front of 'y' words. My grasp of grammar is fine, thanks. I'll leave you all to discuss it amongst yourselves.

If you had a form that was printed on special paper and it got abbrieviated to SP, you would say I have an SP form for you to fill in 'cos the "S" is sounded es and therefore begins with a vowel.


Correct.

A E F I L M N O R S X


I suppose it all depends on what it is you're describing rather than a hard and fast rule.

Second one does 'cos it sounds like "exmas" ie beginning with a vowel. :thumbsup:

#28
Jumpingphil;7262163
See above.

But I personally hate the use of Xmas.
Much prefer Christmas. :thumbsup:


Don't think so. :? Even if it is, doesn't sound right. :p

I like this as much as I hate people putting apostrophes where they don't belong.

But I try not to show it. :thumbsup:

Try sayin...."I'm going to have an xmas to beat all xmases"
and............."I'm going to have a xmas to beat all xmases"

Which sounds right.

And I pray for you every night......but you never come. :w00t:


I didn't mean it like that :w00t:

I don't want to say those two sentences, too long :?

Were you an English teacher at some point?
#33

It's there, their and they're that get me. :w00t::roll:


Noooo.......it is simply 'there' as in [COLOR="Magenta"]here[/COLOR] and t[COLOR="Magenta"]here[/COLOR], 'their'... belongs to them, and they're is a shortened they[COLOR="Magenta"] a[/COLOR]re....

.... I think... 'tis late.... :thinking:
