Happy National Grammar Day!
The good folks at The Society for Promotion of Good Grammar (SPOGG) have declared March 4th National Grammar Day. In honor of this occasion, I am willing to confess my most horrible offenses.
Offense #1: Blatant abuse of ellipses - I often rely on them when sounding out an idea over email to a co-worker. It's almost as if I want them to hear me say "ummmm."
Offense #2: Running through the sentence stoplight - It seems I simply can't stop going on and on and on and well, on. Perhaps, if I got a ticket for each offense -- I wouldn't hang onto my precious adjectives so dearly.
Offense #3: Overuse of IDK, OMG, TTYL and ROFL - I command thee to stay limited to the Crackberry (oh, and Twitter...oh, and Facebook...oh, there's MySpace...what if I'm just emailing friends? Hmmmm....ummmmm....IDK).
So what are your worst grammar offenses? SPOGG named President George W. Bush as the top offender for his use of the always delightful "childrens." They've also teamed up with MSN Encarta to develop a fun grammar quiz that you can access via their website. No, I am not telling you my score!
