Funny Friday – The Grammar Nerd
Yes, that’s me. I have been known lovingly as a grammar nerd, a grammar cop, and even the grammar nazi by my honey. I get it, it’s difficult to type everything out in texts or even from your phone to Facebook, but when a reputable news source starts making grammatical errors, I start getting “grinchy”. And sure, I’m not perfect, but I appreciate when basic grammatical rules are followed. If you ever find any basic errors on this website, please feel free to correct me!
A short lesson:
it’s = it is
its = possessive form of “it” (referring to something that belongs to “it”)
there = refers to location (There it is!)
they’re = they are
their = possessive form of they (belonging to them)
your = possessive form of you (belonging to you)
you’re = you are
two = the number 2
to = preposition used before a noun or verb as an infinitive (We are going to the store. We are going to leave now.)
too = also (I love you, too.)
who’s = who is
whose = possessive form of who/whom
These are the few that were at the top of my mind today. Which bother you the most?
To relieve some stress from my mind, here are a few graphics from someecards and one from Piccsy.
