Definitely Improper English

by Sara

It's astounding the percentage of people in our country whose native tongue is English who butcher the language.

It offends my ear and I cringe every time "was" is used instead "were", basically all past, present and future tenses used incorrectly, the word "ax" instead of "ask" and so forth.
