  5. Yes they do!
    But let me tell you what we are experiencing now in Portugal. This year it was agreed a new way of writing portuguese, perhaps more similar to the way portuguese is written in Brasil (The differences between portuguese used in Portugal and portuguese used in Brasil are much much more numerous than english from the USA and the UK). For those who are used to write it for some decades, the new oficial version is full of "typos" or, to be more precise, of mistakes! This is very confusion for us, parents, to tell our children how to write well, because we simply do not know anymore!
    It is sad to live in a country where, suddenly, you do not know how to write correctly your own language!!
    This is something that would never happen in America! As I mentioned before, I love the USA...

  8. It takes a village to proofread! I taught professional writing, and still I find errors in my own writing after proofreading several times. Sigh.

  9. It's amazing to me that I can read my posts several times before I publish them, and the next day find an error!
