I Am a Proud Grammar Nazi

    One of my biggest pet peeves is improper

    grammar. I know that nobody's perfect, but you can at least TRY to pay attention in English class. *You're not your. There's a difference between there, their, and they're. And don't even get me started on "then" and "than". CAN YOU EVEN ENGLISH??! :/

    If That's What You Want

    to call using proper grammar, proofreading my writing, and having a basic command of the English language. Then, ok. Heil Grammar!

    If you write stories with "dis"

    and "dat" or use "wit" rather than "with" or "ur" I won't read your nonsense and I certainly won't add you. These days there's no excuse for bad grammar and the excuse "dats de way I talk" doesn't cut it. It doesn't translate, idiot.

    I hate when people spell things wrong,

    even if it's an abbreviation, some people don't even spell the abbreviations right

    English Is Easy For Me.

    I've always found English an easy language to understand and to write properly. I know how to use punctuation correctly and I can spell almost every word I come across. I'm sometimes good at guessing how to spell new words too! Once I learn how to spell new words, they are...

    Today alone, I have witnessed the misuse of

    "except" to mean "accept" a dozen times. One more time is all it will take for me to verbally bitchslap someone.

    So there's this cement thing on the side of the

    road somewhere that said, "It's to late to...(blah, blah, blah)" It irritated me to no end that they forgot the second 'O.' Every time I'd pass by, I'd check it so see if anyone corrected it. None. However, more people decided to graffiti things to make it say other things...

    I can't help myself,

    but I sometimes mispell words to make a point, like "I cri everitim" is sarcastically "I cry everytime" xD like if someone trolls me, it's to point out how little of a **** I give.

    I wouldn't say I'm a full blown grammar nazi

    but the "women" vs. "woman" stuff annoys me so badly. You are not a strong "women" at all. You are a dumb "woman" for not knowing you just used the plural word for "woman"!

    I am more upset by grammatical errors in insults

    than I am with the insult itself, but it gives me complete satisfaction when my correcting of them angers them.

    Even Hitler has her moments.

    I've come to find that a word I use simply does not exist. That word is, "expressionate." I was autocorrected, and it was not a misspelling. The word I didn't know I had been looking for was "expressive" all along!

    I can't stand text speak.

    Misspelled words that a second grader would know. I also hate it when a sentence has a preposition at the end. If you don't know what a preposition is, look it up.

    I wonder how many people believe 'of course' is

    one word. 'Every time' is also two words, which initially threw me because 'everywhere,' 'everyone,' and 'everything' are one word. I wonder how many people know how to spell what 'etc.' is short for. (By the way, it's two words.)

    What I find funny and endearing is people's use,

    in a sentence, of "and I", or " and me". Someone might use in a sentence "and I" to describe two people doing things when you really need to use "and me". I find this a little hilarious.

    Why do people sound stupid

    when they say, "regretted" instead of "regret?" It sounds wrong. Yet, I believe the past tense of text is "texted" and many people will not use that. They will say, "I text her yesterday," which sounds like ebonics to me. I regretted that I texted her. I regret that I texted...

    In a conversation where you are trying to make

    a point, using the wrong version of there/their/they're, your/you're, where/were/we're, and even to/too/two makes the reader think you're an idiot.
