KittyKatKrack’s Super Guidelines to Proper Spelling and Grammar
*PLEASE NOTE: Even if your writing program with its spell check doesn’t say something’s wrong with your spelling or grammar, it can still be wrong. The context of a sentence can be different than what the program is made to understand. For instance, my first sentence was just called incorrect. It told me to make “your” into “you’re.” As you’ll see below, that is INCORRECT. Yes, Word is capable of being wrong. What a shocker.
SPEEDY GRAMMAR LESSON:
Your= Possession. “This is your fault, dummy.”
You’re= Conjunction. You are. “You’re an idiot!”
Their= Possession. “Their stupidity is seriously bothering me.”
They’re= Conjunction. They are. “They’re about to get punched in the face.”
There= A place. “That’s a really dumb person over there.”
To= A preposition. Used between words. “This idiot is not going to learn.”
Too= Meaning also. Usually has a comma before it. “This person’s pretty stupid, too.”
Two= Seriously? This is a NUMBER. “I see two stupid people right here.”
Hear= A sense. “I hear stupid people!”
Here= A place. “Come here so I can smack you.”
Where= A place, often starts a question. “Where can I find smarter people?”
I= Word used when describing yourself; in other words, a personal pronoun. Since it’s a proper noun, it is ALWAYS capitalized. (Yes, even if it’s in the middle of a sentence). “I’m so annoyed at bad grammar.”
Those= Multiple of something. “Those people are quite obnoxious.”
Ain’t= Not really a word. It might be in the dictionary, but you’ll only sound like a hillbilly if you use it at any point. I’m not even going to use it in a sentence.
Isn’t= The proper version of “ain’t.” Conjunction of is not. “This isn’t going to help you at all, is it, you twit?”
Bored= A state of mind. A feeling. “I’m really getting bored writing all of this.”
Board= A PIECE OF WOOD. WHAT THE HECK PEOPLE? (May also be a board game). “I might have to smack you with that board over there.”
I’ll= Conjunction of I will. “I’ll just have to make a set of rules to help you people.”
Ill= Being sick. “I’m feeling ill today, so I can’t go to school.
Write= Come on. We all know this one. “I love to write poetry.”
Right= Meaning correct. “Everyone should know the difference between right and wrong.”
Please learn. If you use the wrong grammar with words like this, you just seem like a total idiot who doesn’t know what they’re doing. Seriously, this is getting ridiculous.
COMMONPLACE WORDS THAT ARE OFTEN MISSPELLED OR MISTAKEN:
‘Cause- The shortened version of “Because.” If you shorten because, you really do need the apostrophe before the C. I’m serious. (An apostrophe looks like this: ‘ )
People- I don’t really understand how PEOPLE can’t put an O in this word. There is one. Just in case you didn’t know.
Quiet, Quite, and Quit- These might look the same but they DO NOT MEAN THE SAME THING:
Quiet= Meaning silent or a soft sound. “Some people are quite quiet when they quit.”
Quite= Meaning very. Used to describe something; paired with an adjective. “Some people are quite quiet when they quit.”
Quit= To stop doing something. “Some people are quite quiet when they quit.”
College and Collage- Two different words, people. SRSLY:
College= Come on now. We all know what this is. “I’m going to an Ivy League college after high school.”
Collage= A form of art in which various materials such as photographs and pieces of paper or fabric are arranged and stuck to a backing. “This collage is going to look great once we get more magazines to use.”
Grammar= The set of rules dictating how words and sentences are used in a language.
Grammer= The misspelled version of grammar. This isn’t a word.
There you go. Don’t type “grammer.” Don’t you even dare.
SENTENCE STRUCTURE ISSUES:
Run-on sentences- When you have two complete sentences made into one huge sentence, it just makes no sense. I know that some people don’t even realize they create these sentences, so I thought that I’d bring this to light.
Example: “My friend and I went to the park today it was really fun.”
Possible Correction: “My friend and I went to the park today. It was really fun.”
THIS IS STILL NOT CORRECT: “My friend and I went to the park today, it was really fun.”
A comma does NOT replace a period. If you’d like to do this kind of sentence, try this instead: “My friend and I went to the park today; it was really fun.”
That mark is called a semicolon ( ; ), and can be used between two COMPLETE sentences to make them one. Do not use a semicolon between two sentences which are not complete. That makes it incorrect.
Fragments- A fragment is the same thing as an incomplete sentence. They lack a subject, verb, or both.
Example: “An incomplete sentence.”
Possible Correction: “This is not an incomplete sentence.”
These are pretty easy to spot and fix. So spot and fix them.
Commas: I notice that a lot of people have issues using commas. There’s one thing in particular that just really irks me.
Using Commas to Connect Two Complete Sentences- I know that up in “Run-on Sentences” I said that commas can’t be used to combine complete sentences. That isn’t completely true. Commas can’t be used by themselves to combine complete sentences, because that makes them run-on sentences. I already went over this. However, if you use a connecting word such as “and” or “because,” it makes the sentence grammatically correct.
Example: “I don’t understand. I’ll try to do the assignment anyways.”
To make these sentences one, try this:
“I don’t understand, but I’ll try to do the assignment anyways.”
Sounds much better, doesn't it?
Using Commas after a Transition Word- Wow, guys. This is pitiful.
Example: “Once I did my homework on the bus.”
If that’s all you’re going to say, there has to be a comma after “once.” I kid you not. “Once, I did my homework on the bus.”
This gets its own special little space, since there’s quite a bit to say. (Ha-ha, quite a bit to say about dialogue. I’m so funny, right?)
First of all, dialogue is when people are talking. You know those words inside the quotation marks? Yeah, that’s dialogue. (Just making sure everyone reading this knew that.)
Okay, let’s start with the basics. I’ll start out by saying that fragments are sometimes acceptable in dialogue. I know, total blasphemy here, but it’s true. People don’t speak using perfect grammar all the time, so when you’re typing casual dialogue (between friends/not formal), fragments can be ignored. Otherwise, please fix them.
Structure of a Sentence in a Dialogue- I think I’ll start at the end of the sentence. Usually, at the end of a person talking, you would write, “she/he/they said.” This is perfectly correct. Now here’s the problem:
“I really don’t know why” she said.
There’s something wrong here. Can you see what it is? (Gosh, I feel like I’m Dora the Explorer or something. Ick.) This poor sentence needs a comma. Yes, a comma! Our best grammar friend wants to be a part of this sentence like this:
“I really don’t know why,” she said.
See what I did there? That’s correct. This is incorrect:
“I really don’t know why.” She said.
Again, there has to be a comma there. I don’t know why exactly, but it’s correct. Trust me, it is.
Now, here’s another thing I’m seeing a lot:
“I can’t stop!” He shouted.
It seems like there’s nothing wrong here, but there is. The “he” doesn’t have to be capitalized. Go figure, right?
“I can’t stop!” he shouted.
If you’re not saying “she/he/they said” after the sentence, and instead you’re saying it before, it’s basically the same principle:
I whined, “Mom, please let me go to the party!”
You see, the comma is still there. Pretty easy, I’d think.
Now here’s another problem I see all the time: people are putting that little comma there when they’re not writing “she/he/they said” at all.
“Just leave me alone,” they stomped off angrily.
Anyone can see that this looks and sounds very awkward. That’s because it’s grammatically incorrect. Here’s the right way to do this:
“Just leave me alone.” They stomped off angrily.
A simple concept, maybe, but I see this all the time. Hopefully, I’ll prevent some of these errors with this.
Dialogues in Paragraphs- When different people are speaking to each other, I often see this in people’s writing:
“You just don’t understand,” she snapped. “I don’t understand because you won’t explain,” I cried.
When you switch from one person to another, there needs to be a new paragraph. I know, it sounds really confusing. I kind of confused myself. Ha-ha. Either way, here’s how you do this correctly:
“You just don’t understand,” she snapped.
“I don’t understand because you won’t explain,” I cried.
Now doesn’t that sound so much better?
Alright, now see if you can use your understanding of these rules/guidelines to spot the mistakes in this passage:
Ill make this super easy four you peeple. Dont even try to avoid this part youll fail at righting. You’re mind’s are mushy cause you dont use good grammer. Quieting ain’t the answer.
