comment Did English ever have a formal version of “you”?
Interesting to note we typically address God in the familiar form, not the formal.

comment What mnemonics help solve common linguistic issues?
When I took German, I'd sing "aus ausser bei mit, nach seit, von zu" to the Blue Danube tune, and "an auf hinter in vor neben ueber unter zwischen" to the Ode to Joy. YMMV

comment Will grammar errors become correct after enough people use them for enough time?
@Emtucifor: My point is simply that if you're going to clutch your pearls this tight and go all " O tempora o mores! " on us, it's more convincing if you yourself don't exemplify the decline of standards you are bemoaning. If you don't hold yourself to a standard of perfection, then what could possibly be the point of your question?
