The contraction of 'you are' is 'you're,' not 'your.'

You're not trying to "peak" interest, you're trying to "pique" interest.

You're probably not looking for a "discrete" relationship, you philandering buttwipe, because you don't know what "discrete" means. You're looking for a "discreet" relationship.

One female human is a "woman," not a "women."

People who make these errors should not be having sex.

Moreover, they should be forced to live on an island amongst all other illiterates. Why should we who know, care about or love the language be forced to suffer by enduring their ignorance or stupidity?

...actually, I think the literates would be on the island, and everyone who reads this blog would be on the island. It's still worth a shot.

Argh I know you're so right. Island idea is a good one, exept that island would have to be massive so they could all fit so yes, you who said the island would be for us would probably be right...

I'll vote for that last.

Sadly, that's about all they have to occupy their time.

Doesn't look good, does it.

That's because they're idiots (not their idiots).

The problem with people that don't understand this is that they do have sex, and then they breed another generation of idiots that still don't understand but also don't proofread.

A week ago I pointed out to my wife that she had used "it's" in a widely-applauded blurb she'd written where "its" was correct. She called me a dirty name, which was presumably some kind of come-on, but I have remained resolute.

Required reading,

Keep it filthy.

I know this guy! He's the one I want to bitch slap until my hands fall off because he says, "lie-berry" instead of "library." He's also fond of saying, "two twins," when he really means "twins," and cannot resist tossing a casual "me, myself, personally" reference into every conversation he has.

Twit.

But isn't language a living thing, evolving and developing with every moment that goes by? Go and read Shakespeare and see how far we've come! What about the impact of txt mssgng and blogging (is this a word?) on English, or for the purists 'American English'. If you can't pass the jam, give me the Jelly instead....

Since we're all a tad pissy today, could I please ask you all to not use a couple clichés?
No more saying, "At the end of the day", or that something was "surreal"; please, be more creative. One final crotchet--when we say something is "ironic", make sure it is ironic and not simply a coincidence.

Thanks, chip. (not a purist but just want to keep ironic ironic)

Well, here's irony for you: the author of this blog is writing about her grammar peeve and smack in the middle of all of the posted comments is this egregrious grammar violation:

The problem with people that don't understand this is that they do have sex, and then they breed another generation of idiots that still don't understand but also don't proofread.

The proper sentence should read: The problem with people WHO don't understand this is that they do have sex, and then they breed another generation of idiots WHO sitll don't understand but also don't proofread.

It's WHO, people, WHO. Not that. That is for objects and things. Who is for people. Aaaaaah!

I'd like to add the gramatical error of "irregardless" to your list.

 
At Monday, March 27, 2006 7:39:00 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I take umbrage to that. I believe I recall “irregardless” deemed acceptable by a slim majority of grammar Nazis. As an Italian-American I say, “Not-for-nothin but F’n aye-right!” I recall the split infinitive has been booned ok too.

It’s good to be American.

How about people who write "seperate" instead of "separate"? I refer to your most recent posting!
