I see my lack perfection and mastering of the English language a disadvantage and a disability when it comes to express myself.

I am very offended.




So...you've offended...yourself?

There's no need to even include yourself in the debate if your English is a second language. You have a god-given right to babble incoherently.

Feel better?

Incomplete enumerations (firstly), run-on sentences, missing punctuation, incorrect case (tell), redundant words (all different), incorrect premises (how English developed).

Very humorous.

As an example of composition, I’d give you a D minus, though I might give you a B plus for self-parody.

Are you an English teacher? Can you explain to me what a "dangling modifier" is?

Fueny enough I have a colledge level writting skill.. Yet I have to admit I only have a 6th grade spellin level...Due to my dyslexia. I see or write things backwards.. I see 23 and write 32.. Doh!!

Sorry in advacne for my horrid spelling.. If I make a thread I try to write it out in notepad, and then do spell check..

-----------Thanks for the spelling Tips in the OP--------------------

But many of the times I am writting I tend to just write in the box here, and then re-read my post, and hit the edit button for any mistakes..

I am only human.. and sometimes spelling is very hard for me.. Yet spelling I dont think should count aginst ones mental level..

English in itself too, is very hard lang.. something might sound differently than its spellered.. So I will Try more better, to spell the words right..
hehe was makin a little joke in there if you could tell..

But overall, I dont think its that big of a deal with spelling.. Unless its like every other word.. then It might get a little annoying..
Other than that.. ITs the post I look at, not the spelling of the post

Many very smart people can write all day long, but not be able to spell all that way.. Like Me




Riotcomming
Admittedly, I am a real stickler for spelling,


Well then.. heheh I hope in the future you dont ever mispell anything ever!
Or Im going to bring this thread back up and stick it in your face!!!:p
(all in good fun of chorse)

If you ever mispell anything, Im going to say Umm Hey wherent you the guy who says spelling needs to improve:p

IMHO ATS Standard needs not spelling, but more acts of kindness, and selfless acts!!! More people should be worried about other peoples feelings and those who are sick!!!
Spelling is like at the bottom of the list for me!!!

No offense or anyting OP... I feel ya, but really isnt that important..

Eye halve a spelling chequer,
It came with my pea sea.
It plainly marques for my revue,
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word,
And weight four it two say,
Weather eye am wrong or write,
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid,
It nose bee four two long;
And eye kin put the error rite,
It's rarely ever wrong.

A little something my son sent me when I started using email and seemed overly worried about failing to spell perfectly.

It's like color and colour.




It's also like gray and grey. I have noticed here in the U.S, people are starting to spell it grey instead of gray.... When I was a kid, the color was spelt one way....GRAY... I didn't start seeing it spelt grey until relatively recently.

Have to make a reply to the first person who posted this I have a c grade in English, maybe in some peoples book thats great ok what ever I could't care less But their is a thing called "dyslexia" aswell which also people suffer from give some people a break if you can read it and reply whats the problem in my book.

But it never does any harm to look over your post and do a quick spell check aswell.

Marg, I am a horrible speller, and even worse at communication through the written word, I have a hard time putting my thoughts into words,

I am not offended, you know some of us are gifted in some areas, some in others.

Awww Marg,

Don't be offended. People are just blowing off a little steam. There are a lot of folks on ATS who don't have English as their first language and the fact that they post on here at all shows an intent and intellect thats way beyond me, or alot of the nationalised English speakers, because there is no way I could communicate in Spanish or French in their national tongues.

You're doing fine

You were correct on the first word....

BUT....

the second word IS spelt correctly - dialogue IS how non-Americans spell the word.


Besides............... you spelt my member name incorrectly. I believe the spelling bee comp is 2-1 to me!

Honestly, this is the guts of it. Let's forget my eyecatching thread title for a second. there's only one thing that grinds my gears... "your wrong". I saw about 2 or 3 new instances on ATS today. The doctorwhofan guy was one of them, can't remember the other names. Anyway, typos, occasional indiscretions - no problem at all by me.. we all do it (as your last post shows! *blushes*). It's just those few that I pointed out that are repeated over and over again on a daily basis - it verges on the unbelievable!

I will only accept critique from someone from EnZed when said individual also provides simultaneous translation into Maori.

Dude.. dont worry about him... see my post up there.. I did a re-edit..
He is the guy who has the shia pet Avatar.. Sure its funny, Im not a stick in the mud.. But.. its time we all have some empathy..
See post above..
and if I was The doctorwhofan I would consider my fellow members..
We all are not that way.. Sure we like to play around and have fun..
Yet people are getting hurt.. Its all fun and games till someone loses an eye!!! Remember that saying??? I do!
An eye for an eye.. Then in a matter of time the whole world is blind..

WE NEED MORE EMPATHY!!! sorry for yelling... But here...
we need more empathy in this world my friends... IF anything. we need to feel the feelings others feel.. that way we feel what we do to others..
Thus we dont spread the hate...
and now you say but Zysin5 they hate us!!!
dont hate back.... dont do it... Luke!!! use the force!!! heheh ya know!

Wow your naming people who are not involved in this discussion.

What would you like to see?

Banning people who don't use proper grammar and spelling?

Maybe limit membership to English speaking people only?

Who should set the standard?

I feel like your attacking and Harassing people who don't spell or use grammar as well as others. Thats sad IMHO

Haha, you're another one who can't use *you're* properly!


Take it easy, mate.. naming people is a lot easier than going back and quoting the exact thread posts as examples which is what I could do, and it seems people have done that to me - which I took all in good jest. Perhaps you should too!

Just chill a bit bro... ok?
