Grammatically incorrect

Recommended Posts

Interesting, as you made me look this up.  I have probably been incorrect in its usage in the past.

To say something is grammatically incorrect would be like saying it is “right wrong” or “correct incorrect”. The term ungrammatical, on the other hand, suggests the phrase/word is not grammatical or does not follow the rules of grammar.

... warning: @Kzoo is unwelcoming to grammarians and their questions.

No no no.  I was just questioning your role in the process.

Do you have thin internet skin?

Wouldn't that be "do you have a thin internet skin"?

If you assume skin is singular.  A perceive skin in the plural.  A skin would be a dead raccoon or muskrat pelt.

This is a thread on grammar isn't it?

 

And no Dots.  It is not getting weird.

@roadsue?

How much are you paying by word? 😉 

I’m kidding. You probably hear grammatically incorrect more than ungrammatical, but to keep it simple try to avoid adverbs.

Thankfully, and we can credit the "kids" with this change, grammar is going the way of the dodo.  "Our" ways of doing things are soon to be forgotten. Kids don't put up with our old school nonsense.

Maybe, but their abbreviated spelling, a result of texting is sometimes confusing.

I’m unconvinced. This may be true for informal digital communication and situations where meaning is carried at a primarily phonological level (like the names of trendy eateries), but the breadth of print, online, audio, and video discourse I read is conventional.
