Seriously, what has happened to Grammar?
For me it is sort of a pet-peev when people are just too dang lazy to practice good grammar. Now then, I know that not everybody on this forum had English as their first language, but even people that learned it natively can have awful grammar. Many people are even to lazy to capitalize things like "I" and the first letter in a sentence. BN hasnít been on the forums for quite some time, and he is the perfect example, so I am going to use him here. This is a typical sentence that BN would put out:
i skateboard all the time and i have a great time doing it
How hard could it have possibly been to hold down the shift key for the first "I" and the second, and then hit the period button at the end. This kind of thing is very common on forums.
And this kind of thing is not even limited to text. Walking out of school one rainy day, I noticed that the girl in front of me was carrying her shoes in her hand. Another girl who was about 10 feet behind me started talking to the girl, never even bothering to catch up to her. This is basically how their conversation went:
Girl 1: Mosheequa, why you carryin' yo shoes?
Mosheequa: They wet.
Girl 1: Wha?
Mosheequa: They wet!
No, I am not joking. And this took place in America, a natively English speeking country. Anyway, I will cut to the chase. What are your opinions of the degrading of the English language?
