Well I'm gonna do it again. Or should that read properly "I'm going to do it again"
Just so that our many new members are aware.

Hi ,
Just a gentle reminder for our newer members.

As you are aware, this is a multi-national site and we have many members for whom English is not their first language.

To make the site more enjoyable and fun for all, could we, the Admin Team, kindly request that members try to present posts in an easily legible form. We do appreciate that we are not all experts in English Grammar, however, it would be preferable if there was some use of capital letters and punctuation marks within your posts.

Posting only in capital letters is deemed as shouting, and we would ask you to refrain from doing this.

Also, please avoid the use of Text Talk. For those of you who are not sure what Text Talk is, it's a form of shorthand used on mobile phones when sending text messages and during instant messaging.

With thanks,
Admin Team.

That's it, Razaker Smile Native Brits are hardly understandable than other folks speaking English as foreign (but Americans are even worse)LOL Though it's applicable to all native speakers of all languages, I think.

Thank you, Rocdoc Embarrassed It's always a pleasure for me to practise my writing and speaking skills. I had last English courses in university more than 7 years ago but most skills I've got at school more than 13 years ago. So I may sometimes fail using moods, tenses, and declensions or word order or meaningEmbarrassed Also I have to use dictionary sometimes when writing posts on here (shh! it's a secret!!!)Big smile
Re native speakers — maybe natives just use grammar freely and simplify written language as they do in real life.  Wink 

P.S. Btw I don't mind using text talk))) — and such bracket-smileys. I've read that they are a distinguisher of Russians as noone elsewhere uses them, is it true?)

Interesting Link Elliemay - also interesting that it starts off with "In the past ..."
So it just goes to show how old I am. Confused

Hi Geoff,
It's not totally incorrect to start a sentence with "And" or "But" but better not to and use other more formal terms.

Thanks, Elliemay and Geoff! No one is perfect though and I still have some lags in grammarWink And still have some misunderstanding of what native speakers sometimes say (talking to the Greeks and other nations mostly makes no problems)Embarrassed

P.S. I've learned "never start with 'because'" rule at school. Now it's time to add "never start with 'and'" to it. This one and using fragments (sentences with predicate only) are my bad habits derived from spoken languageEmbarrassed

im with you on this one starmel and elliemay i cant stand it when people dont properly punctuate their posts a punctuation mark can make all the difference to the meaning of a sentence as well as making it easier to read
Wink
OR....
I'm with you on this one StarMel and Elliemay. I can't stand it when people don't properly punctuate their posts. A punctuation mark can make all the difference to the meaning of a sentence, as well as making it easier to read!
And StarMel .. (actually you shouldn't really start a sentence with "and") I agree with Elliemay about the standard of your English - wish I could grasp languages to such a degree! Confused

Elliemay, thank you for the reply, you set my mind at ease Big smile 
This forum is a godsend for me indeed! My English is not perfect at all so I have a unique chance to combine business with pleasure: to practise my English skill, to find tons of interesting information about Corfu and Greece and at the same time to associate with nice and pleasant people Hug
P.S. I'll be grateful if anyone points out mistakes in my English (in forum posts or PM's) Embarrassed

Hi,
No, it is not a common point not to use punctuation in the English language. I personally find it extremely difficult to read anything that does not have punctuation as I cannot, often, understand what the person means.
It's all in the punctuation. Wink

Some questions from non-English speaking member: is it a common point not to use punctuation marks in English writing (on forums, chats, daily handwriting etc)? Do natives face any difficulties reading compound sentences without any commas?  I've come across many texts in English obviously lacking punctuation (not on this forum luckily). Is it regarded as illiteracy of the author (as in Russian writing language) or just spelling simplification in American manner?Wink

Oops! Not sure where that message went, I might have posted somewhere else by mistake!!  I'll try again! Yes, I agree with you Bob, spelling can be difficult with some people especially with dyslexia!  I love that Martyn, something so simple as a missed comma can cause chaos with misunderstanding!  Hmmm! I dont think there should be  'ss' is that although it sounds as though there should be!!! Sue x lol
