Y wi hev to hev old 15 sentury speling or iven older in 21?
OK I invented crap above, but there were already 3 segments on Ray Martin’s Current Affair.
Kids missed one word altogether, parents were bit better, and some teachers don’t check spelling and gramma because they are not confident themselves.
Some other statistics:
To slang speak you have to know f. word up to 200 other words and you get by.
2000 words and you get uni degree or at least Tech College
6000 words and you will intimidate almost everybody, as allegedly 50000 words Mr Churchill is long gone.
Dinosaurs are dead, so is old English, lets make it easy and learn real things not phone books.
