FER what reason does this bother you?
And……can you bring it when you go?
Desertification. It's now required in all Southwest states.
it isn't that it isn't taught, it is that it isn't learned and practiced.
Besides, most of the errors I see are by dudes who went to school back in the 'basics' days.
I should of known this thread would be full of grammar cops.
I try not to judge people I don't know. If you speak English even moderately as a second language, you're actually ahead of me as I struggle to learn another language other than English.
I also don't judge people who didn't have the educational opportunities that I had in half decent public schools. Or people who were taught incorrectly by their parents and will never re-learn certain things.
OTOH, if I know you had the opportunities to learn, and you were born in the USA, and you ignored your opportunities intentionally, yeah, that can get annoying.
I notice spelling and grammar mistakes. Sometimes I think "don't they teach anything in school these days?" but then I remember the internet is still relatively new.
We haven't always been exposed to random strangers' writing. Before the World Wide Web, most reading material had been reviewed and corrected by copy editors before being printed. I think those of us who remember those days became used to seeing things printed correctly and that's why errors by regular people who aren't professional writers stand out to us now.
I think we're just seeing the results of everyone being able to post messages online for the entire world to read.
However, I wonder about younger folks growing up today who read more online than on paper. They may never get used to correct spellings if they see the same words spelled multiple ways on a regular basis.
But, not to worry. Kids today don't read anyway. Once in a while I'll see them quietly looking at their smart-phones and ask, "What are you reading?"
"I'm not reading, Dad. I'm watching a video."
don't worry with voice recognition, and cell phones, most people will be illiterate within a generation. reading and books will disappear, progress is not merely a line in one direction, sometimes its a circle....
Right or wrong, assumptions are made about your intelligence by your spelling and grammar.
Many times spell check is to blame because it doesn't know the context in which the word is being used. I blame a lot of it on the recent trend of using acronyms for everything. It's making us lazy.
beleive thats "spelll czechk" or thats what my phone says, sorry to be disagreeeeeabull..
Perhaps you need a "Fur Sail" sign to cheer you up.
its best to train the drones when they are young, prevents behaviour problems down the line. smarphones combine all of the worst elements of technology in a pocket size device, what could go wrong???
Myself lays prostate due to the profundity of the statement.
CL had a two million dollar house for sell on five acers.
Judging by the first quote here, RonR is a grammar cop too, right?!?
Judging by the second quote, RonR either has a sense of humor or has never been on the business end of a hoe while facing a ROW of cotton or some other row crop full of tall weeds.
Third post??? See first observation.
At any rate, yes, the cops are out since that is the point of the OP. The humorists are here, too. My thought is that I will not insult the canine world by using that old saying about where the world is going with regard to grammar or general education, but obviously we are moving toward the lowest common denominator in many areas.
Must have been old-school towers - there's no way 5 laptops could support a house.
Indeed, RonR has a sense of humor. Some might consider it a bit twisted.
Mai wife and eye often text back and fourth in a secret code undetectable bye spell Czech soft wear. Ewe should try it. Moore fun then an ate weak old puppy.
There are at least five grammar or convention issues in that post, so I hope so!
Lots of manufactures do that.
I should of said something earlier.
Local CL ads for drums that say "including symbols" gets me every time. I don't know whether or not it's good to call on these in that the seller may just be drum gear illiterate or it's a drummer that's just plain illiterate. Happens all the time. Just saying.
