comment How to explain accent variations to students
Have them look it up online dicitonaries and hear the sound and see the diferences..even in written one realise/realize If you are a teacher you should be careful..What should I do?If I tell both they will realize and know it..I am only careful about not saying a wrong word or usage and telling the rule..

comment How to explain accent variations to students
Rincewind42 Thank you for telling it..It is always arguable.. American/British have differences and in a way they would discuss about this.a frend of mine got toefl exam But in England she had a proficiency exam..They did not accept Toefl..When you say your book or tell sth about it I can say which is What..So they are different I know and Accept this..In daily or businesss life people solve it pragmatically..No problem.. But for kite word the teacher may say both..I always do it..

When is your language valid for auniversity or a job? Why do they insist that your language must be perfect..When will it be perfect? why are there TOEFL,IELTS,TOEIC,Schprache Diploma exams..? In schools You learn one type and have its exam if you get a good mark you can be accepted.why are there text books with CDs you may hear an Irish or Scottish but they use a standard sentence and you are told sth about accent.Look at BBC Englih teaching programmes They are very careful about the usage/rules etc.So it means that you should learn written/official language..

Sure lots of things change so the language does..There are lots of words/accents all over the world.There should be, too. I have never used an igloo word so far..I have never understood a cockney or Harlem language..They had to make it clear for me..or I have never used and realized street language even if you may hear it in some Series..

comment Should I use 'cards' or 'a card'?
So, I should have added that you guys, with a singular subject you can not say cards??????? I really do not understand I only write the usages I havenot been making up or only telling an opinion.. But Thanks a lot.. Maybe I should change my style of telling...

comment Use of “it” before “sufficeth to say”
I guess you missed it in the first line I had written that it is the spelling of suffices.. Isn't it clear? And I did not tell anything about the time the common one in that bible and in some other texts..I only said could be seen in those..because I know those..also Early Modern English time is(1500-1650) and it became s in this period. but in the texts I mentioned were still same and common... Thank you for your comment..
