i have heard many people using the word "peoples"..while conversing...is there any such word...People is a plural term representing many..still many people have this confusion(perhaps may be they are not confused may be we are)...i don;t know whether they are confused or not..but y the hell they use "peoples" while conversing...clearly shows they have'nt learnt singulars and plurals properly...and when ppl like us advise them "its not peoples its people" they are mot ready to accept it..
One more incident that i recollect now is the one which my dad shared with me..How do u pronounce the word "google" its simple it is pronounced as "gugle" ...One of the colleagues of my dad used to pronounce it as "gugley" (may be he got confused with googly(cricket)...nevertheless it sounds much like "PARLE" When my dad tried to correct him...he said gugley is the correct pronunciation ..Dunno how these ppl manage during official meetings...Change is always good...And those who are reluctant to change can never improve...
In this post i am not trying to offend anyone because even i have pronounced few such words which were corrected by my family members and friends... take care catch u all in the next post..
