Re: where did the rules of written english come from
I just want to know who the heck decided that the number 4 should be spelled "four" but the number 40 should be spelled "forty" , 44 should be spelled "forty-four" and 444 should be spelled "four hundred forty-four"
With a language as irrational as that, It a wonder we've managed to survive this long.
