True, there is American English, Chinese English, and even Indian
English (remember Benny Hill? :-))

So yes the influence is far reaching, but that doesn't excuse the basic
rules of English -- grammar and syntax being abused; nouns being used as
verbs, verbs being used as nouns, incorrect use of plurals (i.e. not
understanding compound nouns.), thinking its ok to stick "ability" on the
end of any word, thinking its ok to stick "ization" on the end of any
word ... etc. etc. etc.

available? :-)
