Unhappy Then vs than

Everyone, please learn the difference. I can't even remember the last time either was used correctly.

rg,

I feel your pain. While we are at it, let's understand the difference between 'to' and 'too', and 'there' and 'their'.

Or, we could just go flying instead.

One of the many spelling/grammar errors common here.
The worst thing is that there are many foreigners knowing and using perfect English - they must laugh at or ridicule us.

Do not forget about fewer and less than!

how about pronouncing:
fort (as a military installation)
forte (as a talent or strength) homophone of the military installation
forte (as in music) pronounced for-tay

How about SALE and SELL ? I see this in classifieds way to often.
"I have the following I'd like to sale" ...........What ?
"I got rid of a lot with my sells "................. What ?
"I saled two last month ! " .......................What ?
You sell an item, you sail a boat ! When you have sold a few things they are your sales, not your sells; cells are in your body !

Oh I just by this new plane. The plane went buy buy. Go bye your self will you.

I Sea you have a nice plane. I was at the see shore.

The seen was filmed in one take. I scene it lots of times.

I am no means a grammar nut, yet there are some posts I just shake my head at.

I did laugh at the one, " I have this plan for sail" It looked liked a plane for sale to me, not a plan, for a sail.

As I Rite this, I find that need to be more meticulous in how I Right, which looks better when I use my Wright hand as opposed to my left!!

However, now that I think about it, I may have made a few mistakes in what I Rote above, but eventually I will learn, because I learn by the Wrote method!!

And they say that English is a difficult language to learn!!

Actually, I do have a Hobby, However, Since I am the sole caregiver for my Mother who is a Stroke victim, I don't get to Fly often, so I do a lot of "On-line Hangar Flying!!" This gives me a bunch of Time to come up with this stuff!!

:-)
