Is Technology Responsible for the Demise of Good Grammar?
What are your pet peeves when it comes to today's use of grammar?
There was school grammar, business grammar and, for those of us in the industry, AP style grammar. Then came technology and everything just fell apart. We no longer spell with any uniformity, we no longer use complete sentences and what do you think is the most overused punctuation mark on the Internet? You got it, the exclamation mark!!!!!!!
With so many people now weighing in on almost every topic up for discussion, it is no surprise there's plenty to keep the grammar police busy. Sometimes, it is just a distraction tactic when someone is on the losing end of an argument. A heated debate on some controversial subject has been known a time or two to end up an equally heated discussion on the improper use of the written English language.
Our question to you today is, do you have any pet peeves when it comes to grammar? What time-honored rule of grammar do you see broken on the Internet, Twitter, Facebook or even in text that makes you go, "OMG, I don't believe u just did that!!!!!!!"
