Grammar Nazi
« on: February 10, 2020, 08:46:47 PM »
So I am going through the whole APA reference thing in school and can I just say that grammar Nazis are a pain in the arse.

Ending a sentence in a preposition is something up with which I shall not put.
Staring at my prose, a dangling participate wasn't present.
There are three things I hate: Grammar Nazis, deadlines, and oxford commas.

OK, your turn. What is something in the English language up with which you cannot put.

Words that sound the same, but are spelled differently and have different meanings. Or words that are spelled the same but sound differently. WHAT did I just say?

I can assure you I had nothing to do with that.

I didn't go to a Grammar school, so that's my excuse.

My issue is with stupidity becoming mainstream.

"I could care less" when the speaker actually means "I couldn't care less"

"would of" for "would've"

"deja vu all over again", an absurdity becomes accepted usage.

"Trump supporters are fucking morons"
“Albums still matter,” he said to the crowd of pop star and music luminaries. “Like books and black lives"

Stop it gang, English is the simplest of all languages. Sure, it has some little annoyances, probably due to the fact it borrowed from many other languages over the years. But overall it's not very complicated. I learnt it in the street at age 5, which probably shows...  ;D
