alright, usually grammar is something picky that doesn't matter, but lately I've been getting confused because there are a lot of hanging modifiers (at least i think that's what it's called) in people's journal entries. that means people use a pronoun like "him" or "her" and you can't tell who they're refering to. for example:
my boyfriend and his ex are talking too much, yesterday he was really out of line (i don't know, i suck at examples) you can't tell if "he" refers to the boyfriend or the ex.
i know i'm being a bitch, but i copy edit for the school paper, so i thought i'd vent about some grammar things
a lot is two words
they're means they are
their is possesive (it's their food)
there shows location (the street is over there)
and "or" question should not have yes and no choices, ex: is justin timberlake a good singer or is it just me? a no response could mean that justin timberlake is not a good singer or it could mean that it's not just you.
sorry about that everyone, i just had to get it out of my system. with my luck, this entire entry is filled with errors and typos of my own.
