Remember when Mrs. Philopitopidopitus (the old hag with the pointy glasses) taught you that the plural of fish was still fish? It never seemed to make much sense. If you had six guppies, then you have six fish. Right?

Right.

One would then assume that swordtails, guppies, and piranhas (I wonder who will be dinner?) are all fish. Right?

Wrong!

We have all made this incorrect assumption. Actually, you now have three species of fishes.

Confused?

It works like this:

The word fish is both singular and plural. When singular, it refers to two or more specimens of the same species. The plural fishes refers to two or more specimens of different species.

Now go back and tell your teacher she was wrong and make sure that she gives you the two points subtracted from your essay for getting it wrong.

Useless?  Useful?  Iíll leave that for you to decide.

Reminds me of that vodaphone add currently on TV. There is a glaring grammetical error involving the use of the word more that has me gritting my teeth everytime I see it.

....and this is coming from me, a person who can't figure out why MS Word gives me a green wiggley line half the time.

I wouldnt go so far as to say I hated people who say somethink - or AKS!!

It used to annoy me - but now I just put it down to deaf teachers.  If I was a teacher and heard kid using those 2 words I would be asking them to repeat their sentence - frequently you will find they can actually spell the word - which tells me they dont even think about what they are saying, or hear what they are saying.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body.

But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming...

WOW, What a Ride!"

Please note: IMHO and e&oe apply to all my posts.

I reckon that would work in a river as long as youve got some mates downstream to fish the bobbing cans out for ya? And if ya see the ranger coming have one of your mates run off with a bag full of watercress so the ranger chases him instead of you!!.LOL!!....
