Transcript of GRAMMAR LESSON
between knowing your shit... and knowing you're shit.
So... let's start with the notorious "your" and "you're"
Notice the proper use of
"you're" and "your."
YOUR = Shows possession
YOU'RE = You are
bag is super gross."
super gross for wearing that bag."
WHO'S vs. WHOSE
what is she trying to say?
She's trying to say that trials show you WHO IS going to be there standing beside you.
WHO IS = WHO'S
As in, "Hey, Sisters,
going to the Beta Gamma probate?"
freaking shoes are at my house? Take them before I throw them away."
"Whose" shows possession, kind of like "your."
show possession just because it has an apostrophe with an 's' at the end.
The apostrophe in "who's" is a substitution for "is."
So... if you can substitute your abbreviation with "who is," then you should use "
If it doesn't make sense, then use "
"__________ bottle of moscato is this? Claim it before I drink it."
...it doesn't make sense to say "Who is bottle of moscato is this?" Therefore, use "
DON'T LET THIS BE YOU!!!
A Lesson on Commonly Misused and Abused Words
Yeah, I know there's SO much more wrong with this, but let's focus on how much of an idiot she looks like solely based on the misuse of "there."
Okay, so she's trying to say "...when
together." So why the hell is she using the same word she would use to point to something like, "hey, it's right over
" ? WHY?!
Since I know no one in my beautiful
chapter would ever write something
like that, I'll just wrap this part up with
one short example:
super opposed to using
cars because they've already
driven them over
It's so easy.
if you're not saying "
," then DON'T use "
This is another one of those words that is
possessive just because it has an apostrophe.
The possessive one actually lacks an apostrophe.
"When scared, a turtle will hide inside
"I don't understand why girls wear Ugg boots when
It's a bigger problem than you think.
For some odd reason, the word
does not exist to some people.
No matter what they are saying,
they use the plural form of the word.
I've seen this:
"lol you're such a cute freshmen!"
ONLY use the word "freshmen" if you are referring to multiple freshies.
I know the words SOUND the same
...but they're not.
If you are talking about a whole
CLASS of freshmen,
you would say "freshman class."
"Freshman" is modifying the word "class,"
and is therefore singular.
