Typo in the Title of a Windows Azure Forum RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I posted this in a separate thread - but was asked to move my post over here...

    I'm not the best at English - but I'm pretty sure the word "the" shouldn't be there in the title of this forum since Windows Azure is a Proper Noun. Alternatively, the word "Platform" could be added at the end of the title and that would work. :)

  • Interesting. English is not my native language, but I feel you're correct.

  • I have several friends from Russia who would say it like this. For instance, if they were on their way to pick me up to go to the movies - they might say "We must go pick up the Ira." We always get a laugh out of it. Anyway - yeah it's not proper grammar.

  • I do have problems with 'the' sometimes (I'm from Russia originally), but not with the proper names :)

    Funny thing, yesterday I was checking my son's paper - he used it's in the context of 'its master' several times in the same paper. English is his main language. I see this error often made by many native speakers.

    Another funny thing - I assume Ira in your case is a men name. It is a common women name in Russia.

  • Haha - that makes sense! My Russian friends (and sometimes other countries from that area) seem to have problem with the tense of a verb. For example, I often hear things like "I can't found the problem". Or, "It used to be lost, but we find it." :)
