Hey all, we have this sociolinguistics thing we've gotta do, gotta survey some people, so I decided why not survey people on LJ? The only requirement is that you need to be a native speaker of English. Also mention what variety of English you speak (American English, Scottish English etc.)

Sometimes there are different ways of saying the same thing. Which of the following sentences would you say and which would you not say (you can choose more than one):

1.    That problem is different than the one I’m talking about.
2.    That problem is different from the one I’m talking about.
3.    That problem is different to the one I’m talking about.

Which one of the following do you think you say (you can choose both):

1.    Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
2.    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Thanks!

EDIT: For the second question, I know the official title of the movie is 'Dwarfs' but what I think the question's getting at is whether you realize it with an /f/ or a /v/.


GOT ENOUGH ANSWERS, THANKS EVERYONE!
