I am currently reading the English novel Forrest Gump and this is the first time I am reading a novel using my second language. I realized that the author is writing somehow different from the English I learned at school, for example he spells wile for while, nex for next, sposed for supposed, cept for except, axe for ask.
My questions are:
- Is this grammatically correct?
- Since this is the only English novel I have finished so far, is this style of writing common in English literature?
- What is author's intention for using spelling like this?
