It's been a long time since I was at school but I have been reading books.
Two books lately have had sentences in them that have annoyed me because they didn't sound right and I don't know if they are right.
First book, the detective walks into a cabin and notices an unlighted stove. "Unlighted" sounds not quite right, should it be "unlit"?
Second book, the adventurer shined the light around. "Shined", should that be "shone"?
Am I out of date with English writing or is it just American English?
