Ignorant people think it is the noise which
fighting catsmake that is so aggravating, but it ain’t so;
it is the sickening grammar that they use.
Please. If you see me post something about grammar in any of my networking sites, don’t think it’s you. It’s not you. It’s not any of my real friends. Why? Because I tell straight to my friends when they start talking MARTIAN! Yes, I don’t want friends who use is instead of are when the subject is plural. Good thing some of them are just too receptive to my constructive remarks.
This is not to brag that I am a communications graduate from a good University. This is not for you to think I mastered everything because I don’t, I never did, I never will. My college friends will agree with me that we never had grammar lessons during our years in UP. We had application, yes, but not the basic English 1 you had back in your schools. The point here is, grammar is taught (and optionally learned) back when we were still 7 or 8. Our early years in elementary started introducing us to basic subject-verb agreement and other rules of grammar.
Don’t get me wrong if I say ‘can you use this instead of these?‘ or ‘can you remove the apostrophe in VL’s because it doesn’t possess anything?’ I correct when things become too obvious to be wrong… And I don’t do it to humiliate you. I do it so you will learn. KUHA MO?
What pisses me is when posers in facebook and twitter try too hard to use the language when they can express themselves better in their native tongue. Hell-err? You rant. You cuss. And suddenly… ‘shut up cause your words is never blablabla.’ WORDS IS? What happened to your thesis before you graduate then? Or did you make one?
