English is a second language on the internet.

Maybe this is a regional thing, but I never noticed this until a couple of years ago. .  so I suspect it’s just an internet thing.

Whinge

It’s whine– or it was when I learned to spell.  Whinge looks like you mixed up ‘wince’ and ‘cringe’, or maybe it’s just a hipster-vogue spelling. 

Webster’s online says it’s a British informal spelling, but my Oxford dictionary doesn’t list it.  I think I’ll let it pass, if you’re a Brit.

If not, please be content using colour and leave this one alone.

I'm a painter, a drummer, a student, and currently unemployed. I also appreciate cats and a bit of light debauchery, but not at the same time or for the same reasons.
