I'm probably not in the appropriate thread here, but I'm a newcomer, so looking forward to communicating with some of you, and of course learning a lot. I saw a thread where some were discussing the place of the apostrophe, which made me realise I have come to the right place for help. You see, my grammar needs a lot of attention and there's a lot I need to learn in that area, so hoping some of you will help educate this mature student. \:\)

Okay, here's your first test - can you repeat this sentence without mangling any vowels - "Australia will win the next Bledisloe Cup."
