Is it a mistake to say "different than"?
I talk a bit about standard and non-standard English. I know "Standard English" is a vague and problematic term - but I think it can sometimes be useful. Maybe ... I started having doubts while editing. Well, I'll just cover this again one day and try explaining it better.
EDIT: Some people seem to think I am correcting Jim Carrey's English. Just to be clear: I am not talking about the grammar in Jim Carrey's video - I am talking about something I said in a previous video. Today's STICK NEWS is about the video which Jim Carrey stars in. Watch the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NySuaJ...
I decided to delete all the comments abusing me for correcting Jim Carrey's English - because I thought they were pretty pointless. I wasn't correcting his English and yes, that would be pretty insensitive.
