Voor wie zich ook zo ergert aan de 'Engelse ziekte', ook wel 'losschrijfziekte' genoemd, je kunt nu stemmen op het ergste geval van het jaar:

De nominaties zijn hilarisch, moeilijk kiezen hoor...

(For those who are as irritated as I am by the increasing habit in Dutch of writing words unconnected - as in English - in stead of connected, here's a novel public vote: Wrong Space Use Of The Year. Some of the nominees are really hilarious)

great examples! Jan 23, 2008

I drew my dentist's attention to a poster in her waiting room about "behandeling van 2 jarigen". She really was surprised. I was the first one in three months. Of course! Birthday candy and dentists are an odd combination.


By the way, don't you think it would make sense asking the moderators to repost it under Dutch. For Eglish speaking people the fact that we call thoughtless borrowed grammar rules "English disease" really might be an eye-opener, but the content might look obscure to them.

OK, but how? Jan 24, 2008

I would have posted this 'under Dutch' if only I knew how. I haven't got much experience with the forums yet.
