Why do so many people on Y!A write 'a women' instead of 'a woman'? I've noticed it more and more lately.?

    Does it really matter, most people just want to ask or answer a question as quick as they can, As long as I can read what they are trying to say, I ignore the mistakes that they make.

    Most of these children were raised with spell check.  And have no idea how to form a properly spelled and composed sentence. And none of them understand that their spelling is a direct reflection of their upbringing and education.  Or lack there of. Woman should be used in the singular context. Women should be used when to describe the group.

    Don't worry, this is grammar fascism, and grammar fascism saves lives. Let's eat grandma! For example. I hope you can tolerate generally ignorant and a bit stupid.

    I think a lot comes down to attention to detail and the fact that most overlook those mistakes these days and do not correct because they themselves make certain mistakes, no matter how they try the odd mistake will occur, so how can they pull up others.

      A lot is from the generation brought up with smartphones, all that text speak has changed the importance of correct spelling as they can make out what is being said, no matter how badly written.
