Bad English speakers proliferate my world.
I hear more and more people dropping the apostrophe when referring to someone or something related or belonging to a person.
I hear people saying “Daniel mother” instead of “Daniel’s mother” and “Daniel pipes” instead of “Daniel’s pipes.”
I am a Singaporean of Chinese descent.
Most of my grandparents were born in China. (Well, my maternal grandmother was born in Singapore.)
My parents were born in Singapore.
I was born here in the late 50’s.
English is not my mother tongue.
But I have written about eight books in English and I think I am qualified to comment.
Hey, you moron, I said “mother tongue” and not “mother’s tongue” and in this case, I am not wrong.
