Should it be “What I Learnt Today?” or “What I Learned Today?”
I am “waiting for” a response, or I am “waiting on” a response?
Netspeak at http://www.netspeak.org is a cool tool that provides a ‘common language’ search. It answers questions about preferred usage, by searching the web for matches for a phrase you specify.
Replace a word you’re not sure about with a ‘?’, or have Netspeak pick between two options using square brackets [ ].
what I [learnt learned] today
shows “What I learned today” is much more commonly used than “What I learnt today”
(imagine all those 12,503 people being incorrect, and only 304 being on the money)
a ? in time
shows ‘a point in time’ is most commonly used – followed by ‘a moment in time’, ‘a wrinkle in time’ (?) and ‘a stich’ in time
shows that the most common first name for a Lembke on the web is Holger.

PS. It seems that cousin Holger has his own website. I wonder what it is for? Sprechen sie deutsch? Unfortunately, my German is completely informed by what I learnt from Hogans Heroes. Achtung! Schnell! I know nufink. At least I can speak to Mike.
