Heck, I didn't know until about a week ago it was no longer proper to put a double space after the period before you started another sentence...

Unique.

Something unique is one of a kind. It can not be "more" unique or "less" unique. It can't even be "amazingly" unique or "awesomely" unique. It's unique. No modifiers needed.

Almost as bad as those who call soldiers on horseback "calvary".

Then there are bullets called "pills".

Sooo painful to see.
It really frosts me when people quote the OP's post in their reply. Wait was that another thread?

Misspleting wurds are a fairy commumn thang. Me speakie Engrish plenty good. Howsomeever, their are tymes when my cleberium tkaes a knap. You know what I mean? ...... Get wat I'm sayin?? Farm out dud.

It has come to mind that social media and cell phones may be the downfall of this great nation. I can't believe how goofy, or love to nitpick, some people are. It is disgusting. Really, it is amazing some have managed to stay alive long enough to reproduce, or finding fault with their chosen one before conception. Not to worry, even Einstein was wrong a few times. Help is a click away........

Yo, Philly is prolly the worstest. Nowhere else can a person pluralize the word “you”. As in, you’s. In the middle of Pa. , it’s spoken as “yin’s”.

"alot" for "a lot"
"could of" for "could've" and "would of" for "would've"
"there, they're, their" misuse
"your, you're" misuse (and of course, "ur")
"yeah, yea, yay" misuse

Apparently one has to be spot on with his language to shoot a rimfire. I would have quoted but I was feared to!

Re: Tom in Mo's post:

I had this stuff drilled in to me so hard that I'm afraid to let go of my high school "Plain English Handbook," (Walsh, 1965). I offer clarity.


Also, I disagree with the convention of putting the quote mark after the period, if the quoted part is just a clause, phrase or word in the sentence, and not the whole sentence itself, as with dialogue.

If the sentence, clause, or phrase ends the sentence, the period is proper. However, if it does not end the sentence, then a comma should be placed inside the second quotation mark.


Bilbo Baggins spent the weekend with a "lady of the night."

Nicknames, words, or phrases used ironically may be put in quotations.


It's a minefield out there, eh?

Fixed that for you.

So, grognards, what's worse? Poor spelling or pour grammer.
