    We Only Speak The Way We Were Raised So Whose Fault Is It

    I was very lucky to have parents that used perfect grammar; but some people are not so lucky. I can remember back in grade 3 I had this crush on a classmate who was extremely beautiful. She was by far the most beautiful girl in the class and her grammar just happened to be the...

    Incorrect Grammer

    Can't blame them. Kelsey's usually a girl's name and Spencer's usually a boy's name.

    Why, Oh Why!?

    I'm not a mother-tongue English speaker but I've always loved it. It is such a beautiful language, I cringe with horror when I find grammar mistakes (like "I seen" or using the simple past instead of the present perfect, just to name one!) or spelling mistakes...

    I Hate Bad Grammar

    People who don't know enough or care enough to use correct grammar. Especially on these sites "texting language" makes me want to scream. Why are folks so lazy or can't be bothered to spell aword. They would rather abbreviate it and hope you understand. What is the point of...

    I Love Ironic Group Titles

    Honestly, I can be a grammar nazi as much as the next guy, but I mostly just joined this group because the word grammar is spelled grammer in the title.

    It Bugs The Living Hell Out Of Me.

    I CAN NOT STAND the fact that people don't use the correct grammar. My sister has taught me everything about proper grammar and if I mess up in this, call me out, not everyone is perfect. But honestly, if you're going to continue to use improper grammar, good luck with life...

    I also hate it when people don't know how to

    spell words like 'grammar'. Of course, the title of this experience might have been intentionally ironic but I doubt it.

    Be honest how many people know the difference

    between "there" "they're " and "their"? If you do please demonstrate . For example : They're getting a dog is 1/4 hot gas 3/4 wolf. There is no evidence to proof he murder his daughter's murder. The group ran to their hideout .
