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.

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

i never understood the dominant/dominate confusion doe


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.

All languages have dialectual evolution. So don't even pretend to act like this is unique to the "American English" dialect. All that aside, the rules for the basic grammatical parts of speech of the English language have remained, relatively speaking, the same throughout history.

Having said that, maybe I don't even notice it, but I rarely see the Dominate/Dominant mistake that so many people bitch about. Perhaps I just overlook it. 

 

"Irregardless" makes me want to punch people in the face, however.

This is just a general plea to learn the difference between common words.

Two that I see very often on the huddle:
Dominate used instead of dominant
Core used instead of corps

I know it's lame to be a grammar nazi, that's why I'm making this thread instead of pointing it out whenever somebody does it. Feel free to add ones that annoy you.

 

That's cool bro. I could care less.

I see it quite a bit, but it isn't really that bothersome to me. "what a dominate performance by our defensive line!"

CRA's posts generally have 2-3 of these mistakes. Every. Single. Post.

It makes me want to suffocate him with a third grade grammar textbook.

Elitist grammar nazis. I usually know the emotion or thought a poster is trying to convey. I dont have time in my day to worry or be angry about those kind of details. I have way too many other things to worry about.
