Firstly, note that on about the 4th page, I apologised if I have been overly prescriptive.
Secondly, this thread only covered the very most basic rules of English grammar - the ones which are necessary to correctly convey what you are trying to say. Without a good understanding of these rules, your work will be difficult to read and open to misinterpretation.
The thing about ethnocentricity was referring to the fact that I was using British English rather than American English in the post, which led to someone believing that I had misspelled in it. Don't worry about that.
I'm not saying you're an idiot if you have trouble with grammar. I'm also not saying that you can't use grammar to be representative of 'real life' (that is, using common grammatical 'mistakes' in a person's speech if it is appropriate). However, if you want something understood in Standard English, you have to be able to write in Standard English, which is why this whole thing was created.
gammer scares me now...:eek: :eek:
and ill shut up now befo im kicked out
Kicked out for what? dude u didnt do anything lol i dont think ur as big of a bad @$$ as u think lol lol:eek:

No prob POST AWAY its intristing lol
That was the best summary of grammar rules I've ever read!
rlly? id rather learn this crap at school, why? honestly this is gay as h***
The one thing you didn't mention was a hyphen, which I use all the time, and probably incorrectly. Do you know how to use one?
Thank you!! I get so sick of bad grammar, especially when I have to "peer-review" other people's writings. This is definitely going to be forced upon them :)
*sigh* oh, the point in time when I first engraved all these requisite syntax rules,i recall all that and loved it! To everyone reading these astonishing rule: these tips are very exceedingly unproblematic and merely extravagant!!
I do enjoy writing correct grammar, though.
i know grammar wya too well, my mom is an editor and lectured me on this stuff when i was like 4 :/
Can you guys check out my story called Run away; you can check either run away by me or anyoumous.
On Hyphen Use:
Don't. Unless you know for a fact that two words are combined with hyphens, don't use them.
Speaking and writing clearly are important. But I think we're all perfectly capable of doing so.
Personally speaking grammar is something which deserves minimal attention. One doesn't need to know how to label a prepositional phrase or such other garbage in order to deliver a powerful inspirational and/or intelligent message.
Grammar gets too much attention.
I find it rather disconcerting when I see grammatically messy stories on this site.
Thank you fro the help
