and what about pronouns? shouldn't îi mean them (masculine) or to him/to her?

Nope, this time it's the same for him/her. But as I said, we use this word only when speaking, not when writing.

Many languages have such forms like the contract forms of the verbs be, have, do and can in English (he's, we're isn't, haven't, don't, can't,...) or the "col" instead of "con il" (with the) in Italian.
They're correct but are usually avoided in formal written texts.

May I ask why did you choose this particular and not very common first name?

(just a music video I'm listening to, so don't pay attention to that)

Full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIqvNp_x0HE
Grab the part after http://www.youtube.com/watch?v= , which in this case is SIqvNp_x0HE. Place the last bit between youtube tags [youtube ][ /youtube] (without the spaces) and you get yourself a video

BBC World News is running a half-hour British football recap. Never seen it before. (Probably because I'm not usually watching at this hour.) Less interested in the sport as such than in the geographical aspect of it...Why is Berwick playing in Scotland?

There is a wee territorial dispute over Berwick-upon-Tweed.
