I am a Frenchie and an English enthusiast. In my language, we use spaces before quotation marks, exclamation marks, and colons.
While I'm aware that this is not the case in English, there are times when, having written in French before, I'll forget about it and use a space before a quotation mark in an English sentence.
Thus: How would a native British/American person perceive my misuse of punctuation spacing, knowing that I'm not a native English-speaking person ?
Would it be something along the lines of "That guy can't even space properly" or "Well, he's an alien, we can't blame him for that"?
More precisely, I'm asking this if I ever were to work in the UK or the US for the first time, and emailed my boss with such a "mistake".
