So, I've got a blog . . . Now what?

Everyone seems to be jumping on the blog bandwagon so I thought I'd give it a go as well. Haven't really got a clue what I'm going to talk about, but that's never really stopped me from saying something, so . . .

When did . . .

. . . the past tense of slay go from slew to slayed? Was I sleeping when that happened?

For the second time in as many days, I've read a news article where the word 'slayed' was used instead of 'slew'. It was very jolting to read.

You have me totally confused now.... "Dennis slayed the dragon" "Dennis slew the dragon"....must go look at my Webster's.

It doesn't sound so bad when you're talking about slaying dragons. I wonder if 'slew' is more a British-ism.

I have the same problem with 'leaped' and 'leapt'.

so what was slewn (j/k! slain) in the articles you were reading (since it wasn't dragons)?

and i'm as american as it gets, and it's always been slay -> slew to me. but then, i'm a reader, and that might be my "problem".

I'm a reader, too, so maybe that is the problem.

The articles had to do with murders. I don't remember what the first one was about but the second was talking about an entire family who was slain in a community that hadn't had a murder since the late 80s.
