Re: "i have never saw a sea turtle"

Re: "i have never saw a sea turtle"

Which is more grating on the ears? Part of the answer is in the tag: "i've lived in wilmington all my life"

Entry #1: The bumpkins that say "seen" without the auxiliary verb.
I seen that movie. I seen that girl before. I seen you in the Food Lion.

OR

Entry #2: This guy. He thinks he's stepping up with the hypercorrection that adds the auxiliary to "saw." I have saw you before; however, I have never saw a sea turtle.

Scrreeetccchhh!

Nothing to do but nag the boards, and I got blisters on me fingers!
