Learn the difference

The only grammar mistake that bothers me is the incorrect use of the reflexive. I think it is because some people are not only certain that they are right but also think it is a more formal way to speak.

 

"Myself and John are heading down to the game"

It's not supposably. It's supposedly.

When people can't seem to figure out the difference between "have" and "of" probably annoys me the most.

 

"We should of fired Rivera last year."

 

Oh really? Should we of? I don't think we should of. I mean, you of to of a coach, and Ron's as good as anyone else available.

 

it's because "should've" sounds like "should of." it's somewhat understandable.

 

 

i never understood the dominant/dominate confusion doe

I used to care about this stuff, then I grew up and learned to chill the f*ck out.

 

I even abuse my moderator privilege here sometimes to correct a good post's grammar because I know some boob is going to come along and ruthlessly belittle him.

But it makes absolutely no sense. At least dominate and dominant are derived from the same word, AND "dominant" sounds like "dominate" pronounced incorrectly, because people tend to shorten or leave out the N.

But should of in a sentence makes zero sense at all.

Lmao, Grammar. What a joke

 

American English is an illiterate slang of British English

 

British English is an illiterate mix Gaelic, Saxon and Latin. 

 

Ever wonder why there are so many spellings for words?

 

Anyone that has ever tried to learn a language knows that most languages do not have exceptions to the rules. And nearly none have so many exceptions as American English.  The reason is because technically it is unintelligible slang created by poor illiterates over a just a few centuries that wasn't even spoken in "polite society" until about 200 years ago.
