Stephen Fry's eloquent response to Grammar Nazis

<< < (3/3)

In texting, I couldn't care less.  Economy of verbosity is the name of the game there.  As long as you have the good sense to not use the same language on your résumé, meh... whatevs.

I think the things that get to me worst are the very same types of things as the 'of' phenomenon... phoneticisms that turn into grammatical faux pas; e.g. "loose" vs. "lose" (yet another plague!), or "At your beckon call", or "One in the same". *shudders*

I'll once again stop before I go too far.

Sometimes the entire subject leaves me feeling like Nova trying to spit out one intelligible word:
'Beneath the Planet of the Apes' - Nova speaks.
