I gotta find me myself a woman
I Got a Woman
Not normally a fun task, but absolutely necessary. I also feel compelled to mention that copywriting and blogging should be conversational and engaging, and breaking formal grammatical and spelling conventions can often be a good thing.
Outside of specific professional or academic contexts, writing with a personal style that makes it easier on the reader is more important than pleasing Strunk and White. That said, I also believe you have to know the rules in order to break them.
The easy way to get this one right is to simply remove the other person from the sentence and then do what sounds correct. This vase is different from the one I have, but I think mine is better than this one. If still in doubt, leave the apostrophe out. Back when I talked about bullet points , one of the tips involved keeping each bullet item in parallel by beginning with the same part of speech.
When writing a list of items in paragraph form, this is even more crucial, and failing to stay in parallel can result in confusion for readers and scorn from English majors. Over the weekend, Kevin bought a new MacBook Pro online, two software programs, and arranged for free shipping. As antiquated as they might seem, these two little Latin abbreviations are pretty handy in modern writing, but only if you use them correctly.
I should of gone to the baseball game, and I could of , if Billy would of done his job. I should have gone to the baseball game, and could have , if Billy had done his job. This creates something similar to a homophone, i. This is a live, interactive, 5-day workshop that is built for all types of content creators who want to build an audience of interested prospects. Bless you for this post.
These mistakes make me grate my teeth, especially when people type loose instead of lose. How does it work for you so far? Eh, in my opinion the message outweighs the spelling and grammar, as long as it is not ridiculous. It all depends on when and for what we would be using the language. For instance, for informal e-mail messages or letters to friends, typographical errors and a few grammatical including misspelling flaws, I think, are forgivable and acceptable.
But when dealing with essays, journalistic articles, or formal speeches, for example, correct grammar must be observed. Not all that sounds correct to the person is necessarily technically correct. Good one Brian. I feel as if I have just finished an English class. Loose and lose are really confusing. Thanks for making it clear with a great example. But I knew it before. Thought of sharing it with those who never knew this.
Great post! It is fun. Thanks for keeping the focus on the main culprits. All of these things bug me and distract me from the content. Regarding i. The mobiles and internet have made every possible shortcut to type in with as little strokes as possible. Cocnerning the so-called Internet, e-mail, blog lingo that have become internationally normal since the advent of Internet accessibility, I think it still a matter of purpose and appropriateness.
However, if one is to write an essay, a formal letter, or—if one is a writer—an article for submission—then, grammar and consistency of style becomes very important. Bottomline, flexibility and adaptability are what we should aim for. Some hide this inability or impatience in learning the rudiments of grammar behind the claim that they could get away with just using so-so way of expressing oneself.
Oh dear! I hope this is irony, because it would be terribly frightening if you actually believed what you wrote. First, you do not deliver a message across. That makes no sense. You deliver a message — full stop. Second, the mobiles and the Internet this should be capitalised do not make anything, because they are not in a position to make anything.
They are after all inanimate objects. It never ceases to amaze me how many mistakes one can make in two short sentences. Please reassure me that this was indeed intended to poke fun at people who write without thinking?!? I especially like the Parallelism point. I have always been in doubt whether to put a verb or not in each part.
Now I know for sure. The difference between less and fewer is one too. Brain, I copied and pasted number three for my future reference.
Yes I try to write in my own style but I like it to make sense. I agree with your point on parallelism, but not your example. What a shame that the spirit of the article itself felt hollow to me when the rest of the text suffered from similar periodic spasms of unintended corrupted character display. Has anyone pondered et cetera lately? I see etc. I tell my clients that if one must etc. There are several gurus whose products are great, but the obvious errors really bothers me when I see it.
LOL at these fine examples of the most common mistakes in the English! Take care. I know I see this at least once per day. I know his was a mistake though, because he used it correctly in the very next sentence.
Can you make an entire website about this so we can change the world? It makes you appear horribly amateur. I totally agree with the style differences between academia and the blogosphere. That conversational, accessible tone is a big reason that people read blogs, I think. You have no idea how good for my soul reading all this has been. Bless you all. I still share your dislike of this but at least I have had it explained to me by an American.
I rationalise the fight to save our language in two ways: first, in any Society that lets the small rules slip, the big rules will eventually follow. This is tautology, is it not? This was a joke, right? Good post, Brian, but I think the main point could be emphasised a little more. The tone should be conversational, informal, and friendly, as you said. Yes, this is something we all do, right, but how many people actually read it to themselves?
Paul, grammar and spelling are within my control, but how words render on every computer on the planet is not even though we try. I have tested emails in Gmail and several other email programs, plus every major feed reader and everything looks great. This is a great post! I defininitely fall into those slackers who mis-use i. Never again after tagging this! Can this possibly be true? English not being my first language; I always thought i.
Many thanks, Brian! The problem sometimes is with people who are native English speakers. In my case, I think I can good enough use the grammar but, still have a lot to work. Yes, the problem with should, could, would, is a common one.
To be clear Brian my setup is xp, ffox with all sort of language add-ons , locale set to en-gb, reading with gmail, albeit on a Spanish os laptop, based in Spain, receiving your article via feedblitz. Very difficult to diagnose why the apostrophes do not render as intended.
Brian, I am italian and I did learn Latin during the high school… but I had no clue about the difference between i. Actually I did not even know they were Latin abbreviations. I have a question for your and the readers: English is not my mother-tongue but most of my audience is located in UK, North-America and Australia. Should I correct even the smallest errors I notice, even if it is time consuming? Or should I just accept it and spend that time to write new posts? For apostrophes, I still use the rule handed down to me by my 7th-grade English teacher.
Contractions: Apostrophe replaces the missing letter or letters. However, possessive pronouns its, his, hers, ours and yours do not take an apostrophe. My writing is laced with grammatical errors.
