(Original post by foolfarian)
Does anyone realise the irony of what he just said combined with the fact he mispelt (pun) "learns" as "learnes"
J
To further the irony, it was originally spelt as 'learnes' just like it used to be 'streames'. The plural of many words was pronounced with the "ez-uz" or "ed" sound. Henced you can have -stream streamed streames-, even though the conventionally accepted spelling would be 'streams'. Just a little thought for you. Look before you leap, that was an undue criticism on foolfarian's part. I do hope this helps people. If anyone should doubt me, merely say so and I'll be more than happy to type in a few quotations to prove the point from S. T. Coleridge's "Poetical Works" as published by one of his relations, son I think.
