    Foolish Basher


    Dietsche, you should go easy on the guy anyway. borrow=lend is established in a number of English dialects ( and quite come for some non-native speakers. not corrects in standard English but completely intelligible. bring and take is trickier still. and a rather meaningless distinction

    and "correct semantics" is a bit of an oxymoron.
    it's a living language and meanings change (semantic shift or semantic progression). though others would argue it won't live long if people keep butchering it :-)
