If you want to improve your English, chat rooms are the last place you should go.

You're better off reading the posts here, where where words are (usually) spelt correctly and placed in correct grammatical order.

Sometimes we make up our own words, though, so watch out. http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

adun, you can join #opengl on efnet anytime. A lot of us will help you with your questions if and when we can. Also, I assure you that we do not talk the way Don't Disturb suggests.

According to dictionary.com ‘spelt’ is legit. I was a little skeptical myself, however I prefer the alternate definition ‘A hardy wheat grown mostly in Europe’. http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

Well, the point was that it would be clearer here than in a chatroom. Nobody said that it was going to be an English class. http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/wink.gif

That'll teach me to make fun before doing my research. I thought that "spelled" was the only correct way.

Thank you all!!! According to your words, I've made a decision that I will post my questions here instead of going to a chatroom for help. So please help me more not only with my programming but also my English.
BTW:should "but also" be followed by another"with"?

Well, my dictionary sais, that "spelt" and "spelled" are both correct. Maybe "spelled" is english english, and "spelt" is american english?

However even this forum can be a bit confusing sometimes. For example i could never find out what "AFAIK" means. Maybe one of you could explain it to me http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

Well, I have been learning English for about 7 years, and all of my teachers(Chinese and American) said both of "spelled" and "spelt" are correct...

adun,

Regarding the "not only ... but also ...", yes, in the sentence you wrote the "with" is needed. When you write "not only [...] but also [...]" the sentence fragments in the []s should be grammatically equivalent, in the sense that each can stand alone in the sentence, i.e. when the "not only", the "but also" and the other [...] are removed. (I am not an expert, so I'm probably using the wrong terminology.) BTW, you will often see this construction badly formed - it is one of the most common errors.

For example, you'll see things like: "The internet is not only useful for obtaining technical information, but also for learning English". Of course, this should be: "The internet is useful not only for obtaining technical information, but also for learning English". This is a fairly mild example.
