    When you’re listening late at night
    You may think the band are not quite right
    But they are, They just play it like that

    Quite right, actually.

    Americans say “thanks.” Brits say “Thank you very much, indeed”.

    Notice where I put the period relative to the quotation mark, both correct in America.

    The real point is that either is understandable and clear — and therefore being nitpicky about the rule doesn’t make much sense. Similarly, who and whom — the use of the wrong one doesn’t create confusion.

    For confusion, you have the English use of adjectives ahead of nouns without any modifiers. Consider oatmeal cookies, made with oatmeal, and Girl Scout cookies, not made with Girl Scouts. It would be clearer if we said “cookies with oatmeal” and “cookies from Girl Scouts”.

    On the whole, though, any language where nouns don’t have masculine and feminine isn’t so bad.

    Or: “Both are correct.”

    I worked as a freelance writer for a number of years and I had learned that the punctuation mark goes outside the quotation mark — and would it kill people now-a-days to include an Oxford comma when listing items in a sentence. Example: Phil, Joe, and Sue wen to town — Not Phil, Joe and Sue.

    I’m English and I would never say “the army are strong”!

    Or adding a T where required, that is unless Wen to town is actually some kind of odd ritual? Who knows?

    I hadn’t come across “the army are strong,” but I have heard “the crowd are restless” on BBC.
