    My favourite grammar error, I suppose, is the so-called 'split infinitive' because I don't think it is an error and I find it interesting when people tell me it is.

    to have a favorite grammatical error,
    one must know that grammar well...
    and two of the things i didn't learn in school,
    was stringin words, and how to spell...

    Dangling and misplaced modifiers can be interesting.

    If he is asking for permission, not about possibility.

    Ha ha. Indeed. Of course, in his mind, BigDoggProblem can - and probably does - have more than one thing that is equally favourite to him ~ nothing huckleberryhound can do can alter that fact ~ so, one can deduce that BigDoggProblem is not questioning his own ability but is instead asking permission to stray a little from the stricture implied by the thread title. 😛

    "President/Senator/MP so-&-so has consistently maintained..." What they mean is "persistent" not "consistent".

    "Practice" is a noun, "practise" is a verb; British English makes this distinction, but I find American usage often makes no distinction there.

    EDIT: BTW, the title of this thread contains a grammatical error and a mis-captialization.
