78. I speak English primarily, but I don't feel it's important beyond that.
However, I do have a number of language-related peeves, such as the use of "alot" as a single word, which irritate me. In many ways, I feel American slang to be a more effective means of communication than correct standard English, especially when speaking. And, though posting here is functionally writing, I usually approach it in a conversational style - thus, my rather liberal use of profanity and often-sloppy attention to typos, despite the spell check button available.
