Is grammar important?
The simplest definition of grammar
When we read posts, emails, or articles with bad grammar, it can make us laugh or feeling annoyed. But it can also ruin someone's reputation and business. I came across a comment from an editor who advertises her service in every author group: "Their totally nuts!"
Do I want to hire her to edit my book? I don't think so!
Simply moving a comma and adding a colon changes the meaning of the sentence, doesn't it?
Adding a small comma makes a huge difference.
When combining two words just doesn't work.
Spelling the word correctly makes things clear and precise.
You don't want to fill a cattle with water and sit it on the stove, right?
How many times do you come across sentences such as:
Kudos to you my friends!
Yup, and those:
The confusing to, too, and two.
Texting or commenting on social sites
When people misspell words and don't use proper grammar on social sites, we laugh because some of the misspelled words or sentences sound hilarious.
When you see bad grammar, what irks you enough to turn into a Grammar Nazi?
