I noticed almost all the grammar stamps are about how people hate it when its misspelled, for example "good grammar is a must" , "everybody knows english so write it like they taught you a school dammit" "if you cant spell right then your a retard" "i r grammar nazi" "i attack people who misspell"... hm... but what if i the reason i make so many spelling mistakes is because i talk another languaje?
Normally i dont mind a couple of kids over the internet making me look retarded over a little mistake and forzing me to write perfect grammar, its the internet after all, not serious bussines.
But i speak another languaje so its obvious im gonna make spelling mistakes. Nothing wrong with that.
Sadly a lot of people accuse others of being an ignorants before even do a bit of research about where the person is from.
And since i didnt have anything to upload lately, heres a stamp.
I'm only a grammar nazi to wanna-be writers. If it's an effort to converse, then making mistakes is quite okay. It's a natural part of learning and if you don't at least try using it, you won't improve. I'm learning a new language myself, but I won't dare write a story in a language I'm not fluent in. English isn't my first language either but I find it's not just the non-native users whose grammar suck. On the contrary, I see a lot more native speakers whose spelling and grammar make my eye twitch, a common mistake being "would of" instead of "would have" What's up with that? But again, I keep my mouth shut as long as the usage is for ordinary conversation and not technical/creative writing. Cheers!
Mistakes such as the right order of words or the right context are okay, everyone does that, even the natives, but I think mistakes such as your instead of your's and its instead of it's and so on are stupid and annoying and they hurt my brain.
I'm not a "pure" Grammar Nazi, I only pull out the technique if someone has unreadable english with no good reason to have it (I consider it OK if it's not their first language) and it's accompanied by the fact that they're pestering me.
It's just that people believe that English will be taken over and will have come full circle to Caveman unts and grunts. That's pretty much why we have Grammar Nazis.
I don't get why Grammar Nazi's pick on other people's grammar, when their grammar can also have mistakes in it from what I've seen. I mean they literally think 'If you know American English, then you MUST speak it perfectly' some of them have told me this and I hate to break it to them but not everyone in the world is going to have 'perfect english' really what human being has perfect grammar?
Thank god I'm not a Grammar Nazi and realize people make mistakes.
I agree with this 100% , my cousin is annoyingly a grammar Nazi. I cannot pronounce the word "the" because of my accent, instead it sounds like the letter "D". I also have problems speaking properly, mainly because my mind is have trouble with speaking so I tend to mix up my words and speak like this "Do just whatever you want". I also have problems reading because a sentence gets mixed up with another one.
