never mind the spelling Rosie - this is just a case of us older people versus the modern world - and anyway, Websters is American, and look what the Yanks have done to British 'English'.
Keith - thanks, I will look out for this one, you can never have too many books.
quote from Lustrousstone, yesterday........"No they're are both British English
". Christine's grammar is better than most of us, usually, but here we have an example of tautology - i.e. the word 'are' has been repeated, consecutively. The second use of the word is completely unnecessary, as it is given already in 'they're' (they are). But I'm still this lady's No. 1 fan, and hope to see her in November.
