    The Unofficial Learn The English language Thread

    Thank you Kilo.



    Default The Official Learn to Speak English Thread
    Definitely does NOT have an A in it.

    That is definitely spelled wrong.

    Grammar does NOT have an e in it.
    It is also not to be confused with "spelling," which seems to be a lost art. Grammar refers essentially to syntax and word usage.

    Grammar is NOT a kind of cracker.

    Your denotes possession.

    Your team sucks.

    You're means you are. It is a contraction, between YOU and ARE.

    You're a fuckwit.

    There means a place, stage, moment, or point.

    Look over there.
    Stop there, before you embarrass yourself.

    Their denotes possession.

    I own their shirt.

    They're is another contraction, between THEY and ARE.

    They're fucking good.

    To is a preposition.

    I'm going to Boston.
    Why would you want to do that?
    Who the hell are you talking to?

    (You're not supposed to end a sentence with a preposition, but fuck off. It's for the sake of the example.)

    Too is synonymous with "as well" or "also."

    I've seen them, too.

    Good is an adjective which describes a noun.

    This is good pizza.
    The new cd is good.

    Well is an adjective which describes a verb (otherwise known as an adverb).

    I don't feel well.
    I didn't do very well in high school.

    "Lil" is not correct. Little is the proper term.

    I have little patience for bad grammar.

    u and ur are also not acceptable. Use "You" and "You're"



    I hope this is of some use to Talksox members. Particularly to those who aim to teach English to our youth.

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    Nicest member on Talksox. I'll say it again. You are a wolf in sheep's clothing. Dipre and Emmz casually throw around baiting, trolling, and inciting. But this fits the definition of all three.
    And who are you, the proud lord said, that I must bow so low?
    Only a cat of a different coat, that's all the truth I know. In a coat of gold or a coat of red, a lion still has claws, And mine are long and sharp, my lord, as long and sharp as yours.

    You would find it amusing. This thread should be deleted or locked, and Spudboy should get warned for trying to pull this shit. Nicest member. The more he posts, the more ironic that title bestowed on him becomes.

    So what do you call it when you do it?

    This is, in fact, a repost of an earlier thread. It is not only informative, but absolutely true. Grammar and spelling seem to be loosely defined on the Internet these days, and it is always good to post a little reminder. This thread was not directed towards any one poster, and Spudboy did not insult or bait anyone.

    Except you, Keeper. Obviously he baited you, because you came in immediately and started attacking him for an imagined insult against an imagined party. Calm down.

    This isn't English class spud, I pay enough attention t grammar when I have to....if I want to use "u" and "ur" here then god dammit I will!

    I have no tolerance for mixing up your/you're and they're/there/their, however.

    You can't stand mixing up 'you're' and 'your', but you're okay with 'ur'?



    For some reason typing that made my head hurt...

    I didn't imagine an insult. This thread is clearly in response to shit he has said to me.

    No you aren't avoiding THE point. You just don't know the English language well enough to recognize my point. I'm glad you won't be teaching English to my children.

    Learn to conjugate (and to proof read).

    By the way, I made no reference to Bay or Damon.

    Well, I don't know what to say, besides that it kinda sucks being picked on for something so stupid constantly, doesn't it?
