Bickering over grammar - and PUNCTUATION


#1

yup, pretty much spot on. To plastic whip, I just realized your signature has a grammar error, it should be “you’re” instead of “your.” I found that ironic


(WildCat23) #2

Heh, oops…


#3

Well you did say “try”.


#4

You’re is the contraction form of ‘you are,’ therefore, if you were to change it to you’re you would get this:

‘Please try you are best’ makes no sense whatsoever.

Your is correct. Your is the possessive of you. Whose best should you try to achieve? Your best.


#5

I think it’s in everyone’s interest to be as grammatically correct as possible. Sure, there will be typos and misspellings and all, but I think people should at least make the effort.


#6

Uhhh Why am I quoted in this?


#7

Because it was split from a topic you posted in and were quoted by Mr. jrspike.


(YoYo_Freak) #8

Their doing it all wrong!


#9

Must… not… correct… grammar…


#10

Run that by me one more time?


#11

Then where, we’re, wear, ware, are also all the same. Same with too, two, to. And bye, by, buy. Don’t forget hare and hair.


#12

That is their house over there.
They’re going to be there tomorrow.


#13

I say start a punctuation thread.


#14

Yay, someone else who appreciates proper grammar usage!

Intriguing idea…


#15

Fixed. :wink:


#16

My love for jhb#### keeps growing and growing…


#17

Mine too.

Example of Punctuation

I’m going to eat John.
I’m going to eat, John.

Punctuation, it saves lives.


#18

Bwahaha, priceless.


#19

I’ll leave this here as some supplementary reading.
