Grammar Freak. by LilithNightwalker Grammar Freak. by LilithNightwalker
The inspiration for this comic was... well... me. I am nuts about correct grammar. I may not use it all the time myself, but I try my hardest to do so, and many people get irritated with me because I have a nasty little habit of correcting other people's grammar.

All of my friends and family can attest to this.

I don't smack people, though.





Sometimes I'd like to, but I don't.

This is hilarious! Reminds me of a conversation I saw on a TV show:

Teacher: I'll be away tomorrow so you'll have a substitute. I'm going to my sister's funeral.
Student: What did she die of?
Teacher: Ending a sentence with a preposition!


I totally get you about the being nuts about grammar thing. I'm somewhat anal retentive about it. I try not to correct people (unless they're English majors with horrible grammar), but I get really frustrated sometimes.

I've been getting better about not getting mad about it, but it still bothers me when people throw grammar out the window and then not care about it. Language is important, and people forget that all too often, in my opinion.

I agree. I'm an English major, but have only been so for a few months. I used to live with an English Education major, though, and her grammar was terrible so I was constantly correcting her on principle. She said that proper English doesn't matter outside of the classroom, so I always wondered why she wanted to teach it. (I think, though, if it matters in the classroom, it matters everywhere.)

hola,

would you mind if i used this picture for a facebook group.

it'd be fitting, considering the fact that it's a group for grammar lovers.

I have noticed that none of your sentences begin with capitalized letters. You have also ended a question with a period, rather than a question mark. This irks me.

Are you truly worthy to head such a group?

Nevertheless, it's fine by me, as long as you give credit where credit is due.

:XD:
