It's actually 'to' pronounced wrong. Like someone saying 'I have teh go to the store'. Note that it is used in one instance but not in the second instance. Use of 'teh' instead of 'to' seems inconsistant but seems to have a pattern to it. I'm thinking of applying for a research grant to get teh the bottom of it.

It could derive from the ancient language of Ebonics. Take such examples as... "I gots teh pimp them ho's" or "You needs teh smoke some dis green, G" Further analyzation is required, of course. [brown]Evil Jewbroni~ 9 posts left[/brown]

Oh...and if spelled in pig-latin: "ehta" and backwards: "het" sounding similar to "hat" so "teh het fets wll, sooze teh het fa cel?" (copyright 2001, Chaingun Grammer Inc)

Stubby - Considering that I correct myself about half the time I do it, you should be grateful. I ALLOW the rest to slip thru so that you can feel better about yourself in pointing out this error of mine, and to mask my obvious attainment of human perfection. [rolleyes]

It's the version of when people say "aks" instead of "ask". Some folks just can't help it.

I think this is the perfect opportunity to start a Government funded think-tank to perform further research. I was just bitching about my job in another thread so this is good timing. Anyone else in?

Well, since I'm a Yankee living in the South, it maybe a little more complex than that. For me, its a "careless" thing.

Why not? That is the reason all these 'scientists' keep screaming 'global warming'. As long as they keep screaming it, they will get research money. Never mind that the ratio is 100:1 with 100 being scientists who say global warming is bunk, and the 1 is the 'scientists' getting grant money.

I find teh name "Stubby" offensive. You are going down.

Might be a problem with peoples' keyboards. If I type quickly (which I normally do, since I learned touch-typing in high school), it adds a second 't' when I type "the", to give "thet". It's a bug in the keyboard's or motherboard's firmware. . . . There ("thre") are a few others that crop up frequently, too. My computer at my ex-workplace had the same type of glitches, but they happened with different combinations of letters.

I seem to be mistyping the as teh more and more lately. Not sure why. Usually when typing fast

I think it was [b]Taoc teh wonder dough[/b] who pioneered the style. Most of the time people do it by accident. I usually misspell it [b]Yhe[/b] by mistake.

At least "teh" is caught by spellcheckers. I am constantly typin "form" when I mean "from" - heck, I just did it now and had to go back and change it!
