I can handle shorthand/slang terms like cuz, gonna, gotcha, etc. Commas and apostrophes get a pass also.

Not knowing the difference in their, there, and they're really grinds my gears.

Yes, all of them.

A total disregard for punctuation really gets me.

I refuse to read text speak.

capitalization is orthography, not grammar

My degree is in English LIt. and Communications and while I'm not a grammar Nazi, per se, some of the basic mistakes, which are clearly repeated by the offenders, make me scratch my head.

'They're, there and their,' 'it's and its' and 'you're and your,' are a few.

I got into law school not based on a stellar LSAT, or GPA, but because I could read and write well and I'm always catching things, but I proofread a lot, so I do catch my mistakes and I'll even go back a day later and edit something that I missed, just because...

Cue vs queue




For instance, you "Cue" the I Am Disappoint pic.

Isn't Nazi supposed to be capitalized?
Link Posted: 4/24/2016 8:44:42 PM EDT
Shouldn't "nazi" be capitalized?

Are you saying that queue is the correct word there?

I've never seen queue in place of cue. Most folks can't even spell queue.

"graduate high school"

"anyways"

Anytime someone drops the article before a common noun:

"on holiday"

"in hospital"

"call hospice"

This and those that refuse to use punctuation. I admit I am not the best speller and thank the Gods all the time for spell check.
Link Posted: 4/24/2016 8:48:34 PM EDT


I'm not qualified, too ignorant.


Link Posted: 4/24/2016 8:50:01 PM EDT
No. But if I notice your shitty spelling you should examine where in life things went wrong .
Link Posted: 4/24/2016 8:50:39 PM EDT
Those who capitalize every word of their sentence. The whole your/you're thing is so simple yet so many people get it wrong, as well as their/they're/there.

But my biggest pet peeve? People who either can't spell for shit and don't use some form of auto correct or spellcheck, or people who use text speech.
That's all I think.
Link Posted: 4/24/2016 8:51:16 PM EDT
Using "then" instead of "than".

"It was a much bigger fire then anyone expected"

I see that a lot here. Not sure why.
Link Posted: 4/24/2016 8:52:35 PM EDT
Some posts are so deficient in capitalization, proper punctuation, subject with verbs and vis versa, and then full of run on sentences and incomplete sentences that I wonder during just which grade did they dropout.  One of these days when I have the time to spend in GD, I'm going to go grammar and spelling police and bust everyone I can.

Well, I went to law school in Miami and grammar was so poor for my class that we all had to take a remedial English/grammar class...for...like...a semester.

Think about that for a second.

Now, to be fair, English is a secondary language for many here in Miami, but these people all graduated from US schools, or most of the 104 people in my class, did.

No because my grammar sucks. What does grind my gears is the dollar sign after the amount. I've been seeing it more and more frequently lately and it drives me nuts.

St. Thomas University.  I was in the second class, so they were bustin' a nut to gain accreditation, so I couldn't necessarily blame the faculty, but beat me with a stick.  

It's hard enough without being forced to take a class you're fully capable in.
