Writing Challenge - A Mistake I used to make

I used to make mistake in writing the Number 19 in Words...I ll often get confused whether the Letter "e" should be there or not....

whether it is Nineteen or Ninteen....

This doubt I always have for almost all the words that ends with the Letter "e"...

I dont know when it has entered into my mind that if we have to add "ed" or "ing" or "teen" to the word ending with the letter "e" then that "e" (Bee is called as "E" in our Tamil Language) should be waved off... i think my kindergarten teacher would have told it in a humourous way...and i still stick on it...

Almost all the times, even today while writing this blog i checked whether "e" should remain with Nine or to be taken off .... hahahha... Frankly speaking, I checked with the Spell check now also.....

Many times I have told to myself that "e" should be there for Nine...but still i get confused while writing....

Let me recite once more.........

E should be there for NINE

                                    THIS IS THAT   "E"    IN OUR LANGUAGE.....

                                                           which scares me often.....

Good, I think many of us having doubt about "E" and "I", either it is there or not. may be it is common problem for non English people, LoL.............Now every one checking their spell while wring some words ending with E..............your E makes noise in our ears :) .......Good blog......

keep it up
