No offense to your daughter or anything, but when I hear someone say "Axe" all I can think is that they're an uneducated idiot. If I were a job interviewer, and someone said axe in an interview, I'd stop them and tell them to get the **** out of my office.

People also don't know how to use the apostrophe after the S. As in the plural possessive.
Or to use an instead of a.
or to and too

I mean you learn this stuff in grade school, and it should be part of your writing the rest of your life.

You don't teach college, do you? My first semester teaching, I had them write papers. Ain't NO way I'm doing that again! It's astounding how badly they write, to the point of being completely incoherent. Spelling and grammar are the least of the problems.

I have been a teaching assistant as a gradiot and I am convinced of the devolution of the English language. These are students trying to graduate with a 4 yr degree with bad grammar and spelling AND no coherence or structure to their writing. Best of luck in the world of work!

My biggest beef related to this is the abuse of the words and structure by business to make "cute" names for their product. This does not help young minds to absorb proper spelling of words! It is on product boxes, bottles, and cans!!!

Grammar is not taught the way it used to be. And many of us have fallen victim to the internet age which seems to discourage any form of proper speech or spelling. Unforunately it sucks that their are young adults out there who might be somewhat intelligent, but are going to miss out on something better in life because they come across as being stupid. My two adopted kids suffered through 6 and 10 years of the Hawaiian school system. There is no way I'm going to be able to totally make up for the education they lost by being pushed to the next grade year after year when they were in no way ready.

I work with acronyms all day and play with idiots at night, oh,sorry, that's youse guyses...

Actually proper spelling is one of my peeves.

I really try to not make spelling mistakes, but sometimes my fingers become dyslexic...especially when they've been drinnking...

Marketeers and the media, including MTV and oft used ebonics quotes, are large contributors of our national dumbing down problem. Governments can control the populous easier if they are not educated.

"Your" is a possessive pronoun...it belongs to you.

"You're" is a contraction of "you are".

Where's the difficulty?

Didn't anyone learn something before graduating high school?
