10 Common Mistakes that native English speakers make

Never really thought about it, but I don't seem to stress any syllable in most words. Could be part of why people say I have no accent.
I'm a native Cumbrian too, and when I moved to Hampshire it took me ages to get used to people saying "Where's that to?" when they mean "What location are you referring to?"

"Did you know there's a party tonight?" "No, where's that to?"
It's funny because I know the grammatical rules of, say French, far more comprehensively (ha hah) than my own language, but I feel I have an automatic, or intuitive grasp of the rules we follow.

I don't ever hear British Engish speakers say 'went' as in 'we should've went to the party', but it is something I hear in American English a lot.

And +1 to what Robert said re fewer and lesser. I learnt that from Stephen Fry and Tesco :D

When I first came across the "went" mistake it was as the expression "Let's went." since it was so obviously and horrendously ungrammatical, I assumed it was a joke and learned later that it had indeed been used in a humorous way. However, later I kept coming across the "went" mistake and it wasn't being used in a joking fashion. So I assumed they were trying to be cool by being grammatically incorrect. Then I started hearing people on YouTube and on TV doing the same thing and worse. So I guess they aren't joking after all. Such mistakes are probably perpetuated by parents who use it around their kids. I have also one American say "He didn't did it. If he had did it, I would admit he had did it but he didn't did it." That American was a late boxing sports commentator on TV.
