I don't really care about all the other common grammar errors, I figured you guys would have some fun with it. Seeing as how this is a brewing forum and I see some form of palate used incorrectly almost daily, I figured some could use a refresher.

I like it when other people screw up. Then I can do my superiority dance.

I gave up being a grammar cop when they said I couldn't beat the living sh*t out of offenders anymore.....

see, if a person is British and doesn't pronounce the initial H on a word, then saying "an historic" makes perfect sense. You use "an" when there's no consonant on the beginning of the next word.

What bugs the hell out of me is Americans who DO pronounce the H using "an historic" in an effort to be pretentious.

Right, it all depends on how you pronounce the word. I mean, clearly, saying someone put in "an honest day's work" is valid. Historic is no difference, if you don't pronounce the h.

You use "an" when you don't *pronounce* a consonant. You've just demonstrated an example where there is a consonant (though not pronounced), and an example of the opposite (that it can still just be "a" even when the next word starts with a vowel) would be "a European".

This is what I'm talking about. Doesn't bug me if the H isn't pronounced and it flows correctly. But there's a local news anchor who always pronounces "an historic" with the H, and it makes me want to throw a brick at the TV every time I hear it.
