I have grammar-hating friends.

Would I be unreasonable to post a Facebook status every day with an important grammar lesson for them all?

I have just let them all know that there is a difference between slither and sliver after one of them said they were enjoying a slither of cake.

Tomorrow's lesson will be that 'alot' is not a word.

What lessons would you add to my services?

It's for the greater good. grin

That there is no such word as gawjus, makes me want to punch the person every time.

Ooh, hard choice...

Either that a 'hun' is a member of an ancient European nomadic tribe, NOT a shortening for honey (unless you're Winnie-the-Pooh) or that there is no such phrase as 'would of'.

Oh yes, all 'txt spk' makes my eyes itch.

Do they not realise the days of a text message having a character limit are long gone?!

ALovelyBunchOfCoconuts Sat 22-Jun-13 19:08:33

My plan is to annoy them all one by one. They'll drop like flies. grin

Similar to "alot", "aswell" is not a word!!

Oh, and the ever-useful guide to there/their/they're and your/you're.

It's 'do you' not 'jew'. This one isy SIL in particular.

Jew?? I haven't seen that one before. That's just ridiculous.

MikeLitoris Sat 22-Jun-13 20:48:38

Oh yes! She often texts me things like 'jew wana cme shps?'

Can hardly understand her!

ALovelyBunchOfCoconuts Sat 22-Jun-13 20:54:18

I keep hearing an advert on the radio (for men's hair dye of all things) and I am sure they are saying it is "full-proof". Because being fullish is never a good thing.

Missing punctuation of all kinds in a post, so making one long dribble of words that sort of go together but make no sense.

A 'slither of cake' made me gip!

Oh, and "Irregardless". What the hell does that mean???
