    Re: Grammar Lesson

    It's just a matter of perspective.
    Text messaging between friends is one thing, but expressing your thoughts in a serious thread is quite another. It seems to imply lazyness which is a virtue most people don't admire.
    There are some very serious threads on this site which deal with grief, rejection, coming out issues etc, in which the writers bare their souls and hearts. To reply in cyber speak is thoughtless and inconsiderate.

    Re: Grammar Lesson

    I know the rules and do check my posts before hitting the post button. My main problem is double letters in some spellings. I sometimes put a double when it should be a single. I do notice mistakes but who am I to judge peolpe on their mistakes? It may be lack of knowledge or just a slip up, I don't know. The english language is fiendishly difficult, as anyone to whom it is not a first language, will attest. I've probably made several mistakes in this post, commerated, when I shouldn't appostriffied badl'y missd ot leters and even used word that don't exist but I hope you get the drift.

    Some of the topics in this thread reminds me those "after school" School House Rock segments.

    Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs here:



    Which were always fun, and as silly as it sounds actually helps me to remember.
    Never regret anything, because in that moment it's exactly what you wanted.

    That was exactly what I was thinking but not sure the best way to say it. Thanks for posting that.

    Whenever we have these threads, I just feel surprised that there are lots of people who seem totally uninterested in improving their grammar. For a brief while I participated on a non-English board. Let me tell you, it was painful. I would have appreciated reading a thread like this because I needed it. And for those of you who speak English as your first language, why wouldn't you want to brush up on your grammar? (Rhetorical question).

    BORING. I try to write the right way but there's people that don't care and this thread won't make any difference.

    Re: Grammar Lesson

    Could someone please clarify its, it's and also where the punctuation goes after a quote.

    For example

    He said, "Hey you're hot"!
    or is it
    He said, "Hey you're hot!"

    Which one is correct. I barely made it through the US public school system with my dignity in tact.

    What do you call someone that can speak 3 languages? Trilingual
    What do you call someone that can speak 2 languages? Bilingual
    What do you call someone that can speak 1 language? An American.

    My understanding is that the punctuation always goes inside the quote.

    But what do I know, I had a similiar experience in Public Education myself.

    Neither.

    It's "Hey, you're hot!" - Have you learnt nothing from this thread??

    Yes, punctuation always goes inside the quote, even if it looks weird.

    He said, "I'm not guilty of this crime" . The Prosecutor produced persuasive evidence at trial which included his confession where he said "I robbed the bank to raise bail money for my wife". (wrong)

    How did I know it would be something criminal as an example.

    That's true hun, but i was taught in school that the aim of learning a different language is the ability to communicate with another culture - its about relaying your information in a format they will understand and can reciprocate - grammar mistakes here and there are not the issue, communication is - God knows the bleeding French don't give a damn about it - "Hescoose me, wore is the mooseom plez?"

    I think it's the same here - communicate your feelings/thoughts/humour without having to worry if the , or the ' is in the right place or even or not if you need to insert a ; or a :

    Re: Grammar Lesson

    actually I like grammar error. It makes the guys seem more blue collar and manly.

    especially in personal ads.

    sticklers for grammar are queens usually.

    give me the MAN cock. leave the queens at the library.

    It is a known fact that education in America is among the worst in the world. There is certainly no reason whatsoever for that to be the case.
    "Grammatical error." You think that's proper English????

    Newsflash for ya: It's "error in grammar." But what do I know? I was educated in the United States of America.

    I 'spose that explains why you guys elected the chimp in chief.

    That is an american rule, real english speakers are able to correctly able to determine in what situations the punctuation should be within or without or entirely superfluous.

    That's one I used to get confused on, too.

    The easiest way to remember is that you only use the apostrophe when you are writing the contraction of it is.

    Example: Learning to write can be difficult. It's not something we're born knowing how to do.

    The apostrophe is in that sentence because you are actually saying It is.

    Example: JUB is a great site because of its members.

    The (normally possessive) apostrophe isn't used because of the conflict with the contraction. They would look the same.
