Darn, after all these years studying English it turns out I don't know sh*t just because I don't happen to live in the US!
By the way, I've got a doubt regarding these sentences:
valerie wrote:I use to make $20 but I don't any more
My add-on use to work but it doesn't any more
I use to live in India but I don't any more
Shouldn't all those "use" actually be "used"? Or is it just another made in the USA language thing?
No, that wouldn't make sense. It was an example, by the way.
If you want proper English it would be :
Previously I made $20, I don't any more.
The word 'use' in the way I 'used' it in my example, is poor English, more of a lazy slang.
