In Sweden/Netherlands/Europe do they spell the word "Much" as "Mutch"

Is it a way of spelling it there? Do people just mispell it a lot due to English being second language?

I've seen SEVERAL people from EU spell it "Mutch" and I sincerely don't get it.

please help

As we're on the topic of odd spellings and such, I've seen people do this:

Instead of "It's" they do - It/s

Anyone know why? :S

For the word "Much", sometimes, it is easier for people in Europe spelling it "Mutch" , it makes more sense for us :P

Do not know why :P

Even as an American I fuck up these words, you're A-okay in my books if you fail on these.

Cause Mutch sounds more correctly to me then much.

And we europeans enjoy a cup of tea so we like to add the letter 'T' to random words to remind the americans that we didnt forget the Tea party as we supported to British empire.

On other note get an other exmple of Mutch from another european as i allready know my grammar and spellish is terrible at every langauge i know.

I always spell quite wrong, i type quiet because i'm either stressed,tired or just generally lazy.

Hang on, do you mean "quite" like in "that's quite a problem" or "quiet" like silent?

I feel unsure about my English skills now.

I think she means

"Shh, be quite"

and

"that's quiet a good gun you have there"

mixing them up

But the way I was using them in my post was correct, yes?

Yes.

Quiet=Shhh

Quite=That's quite

Quiet = Making very little or no sound/noise = "Will you be quiet you are making too much noise".

Quite = Something that is not 'too' something = "Hmmm that's quite small".

Quiet & Quite are pronounced slightly differently.

Aloud = To communicate with sound/generanlly to talk instead of not talking or keeping something to yourself = "I'm talking aloud"

Allowed = Is allowing something to happen = "Ok I will allow you to have a drink"

In regards to the OP in the UK we use 'much'.

This one is really simple. If you press alt + shift you change your keyboard layout. The default nordic/german keyboard layout has the "'" key at the same place as English/American keyboard layout has the "/" key.

As the EN layout is secondary by default on most peoples PCs when they look around in game (with alt) they also may start running (+ shift) so they swap their layouts without knowing it. And most people dont know what alt + shift does so people become clueless of how to change it back. And since most of us have no idea where the "'" key is on american/english keyboards it just simply becomes a factor of trying to do it right but it's really wrong.

Hope that cleared it up. :P

EDIT: Freaking run-on sentences. Gotta get good with the English yo.
