    Bought vs. Brought

    Why is it that a large number of people seem unable to tell the difference between the two?

    Give yourself a gold star young man!

    There's also:

    Two, to and too, as and has, whose and who's and there, their and they're to name a few more.

    It used to bother me more than it does now so I must be mellowing in my old age. The only time it really pisses me off is when someone like a newsreader or a journalist can't get it right. The overuse of apostophes has to be my pet hate at the moment .

    Sorry for the hijack but I feel better for that!

    If my education is right:

    bought - something you've purchased or arrived with.
    brought - NO SUCH WORD!

    The other one is "brang". Again, no such word according to my trip throught the education system...

    One of my favourites:

    Brakes = Breaks.
    No they don't...
    One is the system that stops your car...the other is the time you take from work to drink some form of herbal infusion.


    Or how about:
    Nucular?
    Nuclear?
    ...and the confusion those two generate.

    No, no, no...
    The apostrophe replaces the letter/s missed out when shortening the word...as in Hasn't (as I'm sure you all know)
    That winds me up...

    Just found this. Looks like it could be a laugh - obviously I've checked out a couple on the F list just to make sure it's worth looking at!

    Good shout Jason, that one always gets me going. I swear a mate of mine does it deliberately to wind me up

    People who say "should of" instead of "should have" also get my goat.

    I actually dont understand the whole brought instead of bought

    Surely you would need to have grown up in some sort of shady hillbilly infested town to not understand very basic english.

    It particularly pisses me off when its in the title of a thread!

    The other use of the apostrophe is, of course, to denote possession: i.e.
    • "Ess Three's Porsche" or
    • "Bowfer's wonderful DSG gearbox"
    Apostrophes in place names often fall into disuse over time, so"Earl's Court" becomes "Earls Court".

    A frequent cause of confusion occurs when the two different usages (abbreviation and possession) collide over the two different words that can be spelled with the letters "i", "t" and "s". Hence:
    • "It's" is an abbreviation of "It is", and uses an apostrophe.
    • "Its" is the possessive form of the indefinite article "it" (i.e. "Scotland is a beautiful country, except for its climate"), but despite this, does not use an apostrophe.
    The worst misuse of the apostrophe, however, has to be with plurals. The plural of "potato" is "potatoes", not "potatoe's".

    None of this is fancy stuff, but basic English, as Rodenal said. I learned it for O-level English Language - the equivalent of today's GCSE, for those under the age of 35.

    Bizzare, I was thinking the exact same thing earlier today. Not sure if I saw it on here or another forum but so many people seem to say "brought" instead to "bought".

    On the topic of mispronunciation, I popped into a phone shop a while ago to look at new handsets. When I told the 19-year old airhead that I wanted a handset with a radio, she told me that handsets with radios were being replaced with ones with built-in "MPfree" players. As I am balding & grey-bearded, she obviously thought I was King Lear's grandfather, and so proceeded to ask me: "Do you know what MPfree is?"

    "Sorry", I said, taking my iPod out of my jacket. "I've never heard of MPfree. Are you sure you didn't mean MP Three?"

    That'll teach the little ****-for-brains to try patronising me.

    That reminds me when I was a lad (of 16) starting my first job in what was then Texas Homecare. A customer asked me if we sold "piano hinges" - these are the long metal ones you get on large outside wooden gates. After a brief search, we couldn't find any, so I helpfully advised the man to try any good music shops ...

    My Dad was laughing so hard when I told him I was considering taking him to casualty!!!

    A few years ago, I asked a girl in a book shop if they had a copy of Kirk Douglas' autobiography. "I'll just check", she said. "Who wrote it?"

    BTW, when you are using an apostrophe to denote possession, and the subject word ends in "s", you do need to not add another "s" if you can't be arsed: hence "Kirk Douglas' autobiography" in the above sentence. This is not a hard and fast rule. If you really insist on adding the extra "s", you can do so: hence "St James's Park". It's one of those either-is-acceptable rules that makes English so rich and varied.

    One of the ones that gets me at the moment is affect and effect.

    "Affect and effect have no senses in common. As a verb affect is most commonly used in the sense of "to influence" (how smoking affects health). Effect means "to bring about or execute": layoffs designed to effect savings. Thus the sentence These measures may affect savings could imply that the measures may reduce savings that have already been realized, whereas These measures may effect savings implies that the measures will cause new savings to come about."

    I always thought that you put in the extra "s" if you pronounce it. Hence Kirk Douglas's surfeit of spurious esses :-)

    Oh, and for any Americans reading - it's called English because we invented it, and aluminium has the letter "i" twice - please pronounce them both!

    BTW, when you are using an apostrophe to denote possession, and the subject word ends in "s", you do need to not add another "s" if you can't be arsed: hence "Kirk Douglas' autobiography" in the above sentence. This is not a hard and fast rule. If you really insist on adding the extra "s", you can do so: hence "St James's Park". It's one of those either-is-acceptable rules that makes English so rich and varied.

    (For anyone under the age of 40, Kirk Douglas is Michael Douglas' father.)
    And for anyone under the age of 55, St James's Park is the home of a football club that did once win a domestic trophy.

    Now that's what I call alliteration!

Thus the sentence These measures may affect savings could imply that the measures may reduce savings that have already been realized, whereas These measures may effect savings implies that the measures will cause new savings to come about."
    Quite.
