I Am a Grammar and Spelling Freak

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 108 People

    Sure, I may misspell some words,

    or incorrectly capitalize others. But what really grinds my gears is when one can't spell a simple word such as "what" or "cool", and when one uses words in past tense instead of present tense or vice versa. Besides that, I love teaching people spelling words they haven't heard...

    I appreciate people who can spell n dnt talk

    lyk dis. I can't stand it. Language is an art and people are killing it because they're too lazy or don't have the proper knowledge. I've said it before and I'll say it again: intelligence is attractive. So don't try to come up to me acting all "gangstah" and shiz by greeting me...

    I'm Not Purrfect Though

    I don't expect anyone to follow my lead, let's just be really clear about that. But when it comes to my writings I can't stand to have things looking sloppy because I write so much and have written some books and been through the wringer with editors and stuff so I have it...

    I have been obsessed with spelling

    and grammar since age eleven. I'm not perfect at it, but I'm better that most other thirteen year olds! The only downside is the fact that I get super pissed when I see grammar mistakes on anything. ANYTHING!! Even if it's just writing on a bathroom wall.

    People please take a moment to read this.

    Okay, so I can stand the usual "how r u doin" type stuff, but there's a line between fast-texting/messaging and horrid grammar/spelling. I don't know how many times I've gotten a message (on here, via text message, twitter, etc.), and it looks like a 4 year old tried to text...

    The Importance Of Language

    I have a multitude of nicknames among friends and acquaintances earned for various reasons.  One of them was given to me in jest because of my habits of texting in complete, grammatically correct sentences and automatically correcting mistakes in the speech and writings of...

    I'm a grammar nazi, and I'm happy to say it. Thirteen is the age to join Experience Project, that mean there's no reason you haven't been taught proper English by then.
