The Grammar Nazi Thread: Is that a fucking word?
Ok, I've been wanting a place for grammar nazi's & the like to convene for awhile. Somewhere we can hate on & correct the diction of our fellow man.

I'll start us off with some hate.

Addicting is not a fucking word. Addictive serves every purpose, & has done for hundreds of years. I see this one too often. Even Roosh is culpable on this one. Angel

Now to my question for my fellow nazis...

The word "burglarized". Does it exist?

I would have thought "burgled" would suffice? What say you? & what else fucks you off about the way people (esp immigrants & millenials*) "burgle" the Queen's English?

RE: The Grammar Nazi Thread: Is that a fucking word?
Great idea! Here are my pet boo boos.

Conversate sounds cool but is not a word. Omit it. Also writing loose instead of lose. Example of wretchedness: I need to loose some weight. Theirinstead of there.
Example of foul play: Their are two men on the roof.

Coming in at number one is your for 'you're'.

Your a big man, go and handle it instead of 'you're' which is a contraction of 'you' and 'are'.

RE: The Grammar Nazi Thread: Is that a fucking word?
Here's one that fucked me off just yesterday:

I could care less

If you could care less, it means your current care level is more than it's minimum. The correct term is "I couldn't care less" because obviously if your care factor is already at a minimum, it is not possible to care less.

^ Oh God!!! That one fucks me off! However it seems to be more of a hemisphere thing. South of the border agrees with you (& makes literal sense) but the yanks & geezers see it otherwise.

Irregardless. I knew a guy that considered himself a supreme intellectual but he always used this term. I felt like revoking his nerd glasses every time he uttered it.

Here's some hilarious engrish ones I've heard from my brother-in-law about a gaysian colleague...

"She smokes like a chain"
"Her place is pigstyle"
"I can't be asked"
"cut me some slacks"
"give me the breaks"
"EUthanised" - (referring to white colonisation)
"For fat snake" (for fuck's sake)
"Spreadsheep" (spreadsheet)

"Often" is an adverb. "More" is an adjective. Also a problem with tenses: "need" is future or present; "laid" is not specific as to future or present; "often" is present tense.

Does anyone else need to aks any other questions?

RE: The Grammar Nazi Thread: Is that a fucking word?
So my dad bitches at me for pronouncing things differently from most people, even after I show him in the OED I am pronouncing them correctly. It's even more irksome because he grew up in a gullah community so says such things as:

hyhena (hyena)
acrost (across)
skrimp (shrimp)
skreet (street)
jagwire (jaguar)

And bitches at other people for their individual dialects. The hypocrisy is mind boggling.

I'm fine with grammar transgressions in speech, generally. It's how we hold on to culture. But if you're writing, unless you are trying to showcase a dialect, write the Queen's English for fuck's sake.

Envision - It's envisage. We gave you the language, America, don't take liberties.

I'll be back momentarily - No, you won't, you'll be back in a moment. It's not the same thing, and one is clearly nonsense.

One of my guys said the former the other day; it was all I could do not to throw him out of the window.

RE: The Grammar Nazi Thread: Is that a fucking word?
Irregardless sounds hilarious with a thick Boston accent, however, it is actually is a legit word.

Another funny one is disorientated which is used by Brits whereas Americans say disoriented. Both are acceptable.

Thank you for this thread!

ITS is the possessive form of "it."
IT'S is the contraction of "IT IS."

Can't stand people who say "aks" instead of "ask."

Example: I need to aks you a question.

As with accept and except.

On another note, my wife is hilarious with her occasional butchery of various words.

It's just Nazis. Apostrophes are used for contraction and possession, not to pluralize words.

My favorite from Carlin and one that blew my mind is when he mentioned how all words using the prefix "pre" mean the exact same thing if you remove that prefix.

Pre-heat the oven? HEAT the fucking oven!

Pre-approved for a car loan? Approved!

Pre-qualify? Qualify! Laugh

Irregardless is a double negative and not a word.

You may be confusing this with the proper word "irrespective."

For all intensive purposes.

Used to be that idioms and sayings were common mistakes made by non-native speakers, which is understandable. These days though I see a lot of young white people screwing up the more advanced English phrases and grammar. I don't think anyone ever corrects them; at home, in school, or the workplace.

I used to get in trouble for not using proper English. My dad and Grandpa would always correct me immediately. I was a little shit and would do it to piss them off.

My favorite line was

"I ain't gonna do it nomore."

"should/would/could of"

"defiantly" - fucking read that out loud and tell me you hear "definitely". I see that shit all the time

"I resemble that remark!" - I can't believe my eyes when I read this because not only does it indicate you don't know the meaning of a very basic fucking word, "resemble," ironically you are saying that you indeed seem to represent the characteristics laid out in prior remark. At first I thought people were joking when they wrote this, but I've seen it so many times it has to be intentional, and stupid. It's not even the same number of syllables as "resent."
