    I like to bash Spanish as much as the next person, but English is also regional. So is Hindi, Chinese, and any other language spoken over a broad geographic spread over centuries. It's easier for most Americans and Londoners to understand each other almost 100% while both have difficulty understanding each other's or their own countrymen of certain dialects, doesn't mean these people aren't speaking English. In fact, while most people would have difficulty understanding the residents of Tangier Island VA, Smith Island MD, or Selbyville DE, these people are actually speaking the artifact of Elizabethan English they share with living people in the rural British maritime communities.

    yep, just like Persian French is different from Quebuies, and Hatian, etc

    Or American English from British or Canadian or any other majority English speaking

    Which is not to say that I am not a language Nazi.

    I want to slap people on television who do these things because they spread their bad habits:

    pronounce the t in often

    say did-dint, stoo-dent, or any other misguided attempt at diction which avoids the "(u)nt" sound.

    begin a sentence with "meantime" rather than "In the meantime" or use them interchangeably with "meanwhile" when they actually mean different things.

    the list goes on

    Publix in Orange Beach AL has great fried chicken and taters. Their prices are too high on other things so I shop at Winn Dixie. Being a tourist/vacation town, Americans work in all retail stores.

    I like my neighborhood Publix. They treat me well as a customer, never had a problem.


    I'm still in North GA, just discovered Ingles, which displays a large sign at their entrance "AMERICAN OWNED"
    Great store.
