Now, what English needs is a word equivalent to German Bekannte that is usable in everyday speech; the phrase person one knows and other similar forms are unwieldy, while the word acquaintance is too literary and formal for normal everyday use.

It's very frequent where I live to drop 'to' in 'going to' where it is a non-auxiliary verb: for instance yesterday I found myself saying 'Are you goin' Carmel College?'. I think this might be restricted to when the object is a proper noun, but I'm not sure. I have no idea how widespread this is, though I'm pretty sure it's not standard.

Also just FYI, I have the same restricted definition of 'friend' Travis and others have.

I've noticed myself using resumptive pronouns, eg "the numbers that you multiply them together to get 24".

Dang, just a couple weeks ago I caught myself using a resumptive pronoun in a weird place you wouldn't expect to have to use one. It could not grammatically be omitted, which is very unusual for English. I wish to hell I could remember what that sentence was now. :( I should start saving this kind of thing.

I often end sentences with 'so' and occasionally with 'like', as tho to introduce a related topic or slight redundancy that needs not be said. For example: 'You don't need any candy right now. You've just had dessert, so' or 'All of his stuff had been taken. Naturally he was pissed off, like.'

I used to hold to that same exclusive definition of 'friend' but I've recently heard it used to refer to anyone you see regularly and like and/or whom you've had at least a few good conversations with. 'Buddy' and 'mate' are often used to mean that here too tho.

Well, I'd say that's a place you would expect to find a resumptive pronoun: subclauses of RCs are much less tolerant of such gaps than the main RC is. I feel like that the example I had was strange in a different regard, though I can no longer be certain.

I added an <e> to Slowly thereby rendering it Slowely. It looks so much nicer with the <e>, in my opinion. I like it even though I often complain about how unphonetic this language is.

PROTIP! Your innovative usages aren't nearly as interesting as those of other people.
