I Think Good Grammar Is Hot

There really is something to be said for the sexiness of proper grammatical constructions. 2,240 People

    I was recently editing a Wiki article,

    and another user corrected a sentence I typed. The editor made some mistakes of his own, but I'm not sure whether or not I was wrong in the first place. I used Google to search for a grammar/punctuation rule that would apply to this scenario, but I couldn't find one. Now I'm...

    If you make a habit of writing in actual

    sentences and using and extensive vocabulary, hit me up! I love talking to people who understand and love the English language in and of itself.

    Engaging my brain and not insulting my

    intelligence with text speak will always get you farther with me. If you can't construct a grammatically correct sentence, it's such a turn-off.

    Yes, I admit that I do tend to be one of those

    grammar Nazis. But much less on here. For humanitarian reasons. :)

    I cringe when someone I'm attracted to uses

    poor grammar. I can't help it. It's a fricking deal breaker.

    These words have been on my mind lately: Your

    - the possessive form of "you." You're - the contraction of "you are." Yore - great stories from the past. Ur - an ancient Sumerian city.

    promise of intelligence, even though it sounds arrogant, that's what it is.

    I love using proper grammar,

    but I also think that writing in terms of slang isn't so bad sometimes.

    The Difference Between Hot Or Not

    Grammar can make a story hot or not! I enjoy reading, and some of the stories I've read here are phenomenally written and very Hot! Then there are the ones that have all the facets of a hot story, yet they lack good grammar, putting them in the Not category....at least for me...

    I have a degree in English composition

    and linguistics. I think when writing one should use proper grammar. But, when speaking one should use the colloquial of the audience.

    Good Grammar Is Hot; Grammar Nazis Are Not.

    It's hard for me to find people who appreciate good grammar without practicing elitism or being competitive about it. I see people online make a lot of sarcastic, demeaning jokes about people who have writing problems, and that really turns me off. Although I understand why...

    Is it "In January" or "On January"?

    I have learned the correct answer only yesterday. "In January" when a date is not specific. "On January 1st" when it is. Oh how many years have I been learning English.

    It sounds pretty shallow,

    doesn't it? But there is a correlation between people with grammar like a bull in a china shop and a conversation fizzling out after five minutes.
