I've noticed....

some HORRIBLE spelling and improper use of words in these posts and it's just a pet peve of mine!!!! Here's a crash course for you -



they're = they are (ie: THEY'RE going to the movie.)



their = plural posessive (ie: THEIR house is gray.)



there = a place; noun (ie: The book you are looking for is over THERE.)



then = used to describe time (ie: You do this THEN you do that.)



than = used as a preposition or a conjunction; a comparison (ie: I like this better THAN that.)



Thank you... just had to vent about it!! It's a pet peeve of mine!! lol So what's your pet peeve??

  • Oh! Also forgot to mention the proper use of an apostrophe!!!

    posessive - meaning, belonging to (ie: Becky's shirt is pink.)

    An apostrophe is NEVER EVER EVER used to describe more THAN one. (ie: books NOT book's)
