Last night we were watching a movie, Lewis and Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery. While watching, I heard a sentence that, for some reason, drives me crazy. The narrator said, "He was going to try and get to the summit by nightfall."
Is that grammarically correct? Shouldn't it be, He was going to try to get to the summit by nightfall. Please! Someone help me here. I read it in books all the time! I hear people say it endlessly.
If I am wrong, I will try and not correct it in my head any longer. I mean, I will try to not correct it in my head any longer!
