8.  I really enjoy this stuff. Curiously I know more about grammatical constructs as a result of learning foreign languages than I do as a native English speaker.

So true about learning grammar from other languages which are more precise in their grammar particularly Latin which has a different ending for each word depending on its position in the sentence

Sorry. I was brought up in an under privileged area and went to then local comprehensive school were the Latin lessons were a bit hit and miss and largely consisting of trying to work out the motto's of several football teams on their logos. Hence my limited and shit Latin grammar.

I'm wasted here.  I give you an example of each, in perfect context, and you don't even notice.  Peasant!
