Spelling and Grammar (dun dun dunnnnnn!!!)


About time this thread appeared:

Now from time to time we see a thread where the first bunch of replies are from people correcting the OP's spelling and grammar mistakes.
The next bunch of replies are from people doing the same, but only to make fun of the original people correcting the mistakes.
The third bunch are from people telling the spelling and grammar correctors to stop being so picky and defeating the topic the OP posted the thread for in the first place.
Then an argument starts up between the correctors and everyone else about the whole thing.
Hence the OP's original statement/question never gets answered.

So here are some guidelines:



EXAMPLE ONE:

"Has anyone sen the new JEMFX?"

This is for the correctors - It's quite obvious that "seen" has been spelt incorrectly as "sen".

GET OVER IT!!!

It's a simple mistake and you can still tell what it means, and therefore it has no effect on the message the OP was giving.

Also the JEMFX actually is the JEM EAFX, but because it's still understandable and there are no other new JEM's out, there's no need to get in a hissy about it.


EXAMPLE TWO:

"so i was over at my mates house and he just got a new guitar he said it was a jem so i checked it out the headstock looked wrong and the logo was bent and ive never seen that type of green on a jem the pickguard was dark grey instead of black it was obvious it was a cheap chibanez copy so i told him and he got all angry at me and said i was jealous all i was doing was letting him know because he should deserve to know right whos with me on this?"

To the correctors - Go for it guys.

To the people who tell the correctors off - Let them correct, this poster needs it.



If I made any mistakes (apart from Example Two), they're probably small ones, so don't even think about it.

I think it's really funny how if people write in all caps it seems like they're yelling at you. It's weird, 'cause it's text, but it still seems that way.

I completely concur with this one. A few members' names come to mind.

Well that was the idea with the "Get over it" part, but not the example parts

Yeah I agree, that's pretty irritating in large quantities.

Re: Spelling and Grammar (dun dun dunnnnnn!!!)


There is a big difference between the odd grammatical error, spelling mistake or typo compared to folk who post incomprehensible gibberish through trying to look cool or just being lazy.

If your first language is English, and you don't know when to use "there", "they're" or "their", it may be a sign of poor education but doesn't usually stop understanding of what's meant, so that kind of stuff isn't too important here. If your first language is something other that English I'm in awe of the fact that you can communicate in English at all!

Re: Spelling and Grammar (dun dun dunnnnnn!!!)


i remember when i first joined jemsite i used to get a bit stick over my grammar.the reason for my poor grammar,spelling is i had a brain hemorrhage 8 years ago,which has left me with very poor short term memory problems.once i pointed this out the lads were ok,and nobody questioned my grammar,spelling after that.but it is very frustrating having a poor memory.

When do you start to remember you have a bad short term memory? *<|)

Grammar is important. I'm thankful that someone is quick with corrections. A good way to learn something. As long as they're right, of course.
