    so when i'm typing i get accents over my letters like french for no reason...
    it gets frustrating having to backspace and type it again, but i don't really care...
    i checked and english is the only language loaded into my phone...
    why would this happen!?!?

    You can purposely get accented characters by pressing the key and then ROLLING the trackball. So might you be accidently doing that while typing? (hmmm, I just discovered a whole bunch like the "copyright" symbol on the C key...)

    nope..
    but maybe my trackball is rolling on its own? sometimes it will go to the start of the word when i don't even touch the trackball..
    it's almost time to get a replacement for this one..

    Yes you absolutely have a trackball related issue.

    First thing to try (as with any "unsolvable" BB issue) is to perform a battery pull while the device is still on.

    It might be software-related, in which case the only (current) fix is a replacement.

    There is a chance that your issue is the result of some foreign matter (like dirt) in your trackball. Try wiping it down with an alcohol wipe or even an unscented baby wipe.
