    1) Their There

    2)The prima facie statement. There is one error in the sentence (grammatical), besides the erroneous statement that it itself purports in content (which, technically, makes the tally two mistakes in total, by way of eventual logical conclusion).

    There is one error in the statement.

    The original sentence in the thread title, since edited, was as I pasted immediately below it without change:

    Their are two errors on this sentence.

    And there are indeed 2 grammatical errors in that original sentence.

    Not really fair play to alter the original thread title after it was posted.

    Why do people use Latin expressions in everything? Do they want to sound more intelligent?

    In this case: no.

    It is a common term used in law and logic. I read Law at university. I am used to using the term where it applies. The term applied. I used it.

    Everyone should be more like Xavier and never try to sound more intelligent.

    Certain Latin phrases are embedded in everyday colloquial English language. These phrases are well known and understood, e.g., 'carpe diem'.

    I could understand if a person was speaking constantly in Latin, but getting your nickers in a twist over a seldom but well-used phrase or two here and there is a bit much. Calm your tits.

    Oh, I half agree but I love Latin and enjoy seeing it pop up.
    I find other things RJers do to show their intelligence more annoying, like quoting scientific facts they clearly do not understand.

    I'm very sad for you, that your education was so stunted & incomplete. Latin legal phrases are commonly used & understood in common speech.

    The tragedy is, of course, that the undereducated like you cannot perceive these shortcomings within themselves. How can you know something that... you simply don't know?

    The more prudent path is to ALWAYS assume there are things you don't know. Because there always will be, and you seize these opportunities to learn something new. That's the course that I take. There will always be people smarter than me, and always things that I don't know.

    And now that you realize how fucking stupid you are yourself, I encourage you to learn from this experience, and grow. icon_biggrin.gif

    It is actually prima facie.


    It was a typo that I edited hours ago. Keep up.

    I like that the OP's main bitching point pertains to the accurate identification of the query he set up.

    It's that profile picture of his that makes everything he says sound extra abrasive.

    Sorry. I didn't learn Ebonics.


    LOL, OK, this took a turn for the absurd.

    Now you're a racist as well as an incessant giggling idiot?

    Your existence is worse than genocide =]

    Good day! =D
