  • I think someone mentioned this recently, but since it just came up again...

    Inability to distinguish between "dominant" and "dominate".

    Honestly, in what world does, "He's a dominate player," sound anything like correct?

        ******* hell people, it's not that much different. Is it really that important? If we're talking about typos, you're especially being a ******* grammar nazi. In pronunciation it's not much of a difference either.

          No it's annoying that people who speak English as their primary language can't even distinguish between a verb and an adjective.

          The grammar thing is different to me, as it is an internet forum, I don't expect people to type like they are writing a formal essay. However, there is absolutely no way you can tell me that you know the difference but simply confuse the two and it doesn't matter since it's an internet forum. You don't just use words you know are wrong just because it isn't a formal setting.

          Honestly, has it really come to this? People don't think it's a big deal that they can't differentiate between two ******* words? Are you going to start talking like, "I is went to the store tomorrow," now as well? After all, all those words are similar in meaning to the words that should be there, but since they are close enough I guess it makes sense and should be acceptable, because after all, who needs to have any sort of common sense or the tiniest understanding of the language they speak every day.

          For those who have English as a second language, I don't mean to direct this at you. But for everyone else, get a ******* clue.

            im gonna agree with iowatreat here. i obviously dont give a **** about punctuation and things like that, but at least i type the right ******* words. dominant and dominate are completely different. it bugs me too.

                Would said papers make me want to punt small animals and/or stab my eyes out?

                      • Then I'll go with no.

                        A main reason I decided not to be a teacher was fear that I'd have to punch a kid out of annoyance.
