This is driving me nuts.
Improper grammar I can endure. Abnormal use of words that have nothing to do with what is being talked about, ok fine.
But apostrophes are only to be used for the conjugation of shortened words.
I've seen horrible examples of apostrophe abuse.
Pluralization DOES not require an apostrophe.
Random words that end with an "s" do not always require an apostrophe
I've even seen it done by people who are supposedly educated.
Anyways comment away,
and yes I know there are many other horrible abuses, like people saying "whelp". Which originated from online chat talk of people saying well :p.
That is the word well with a smiley with a tongue sticking out indicating " whatever I don't know "
The Internet is a scary place when even leetspeek is incorrect
I've seen another thread in this talking about figures of speech not being used properly
but they didint talk about apostrophes and i saw some abuse in there
Anyways feel free to attack my grammar and word choice I amtyping on a smart phone (iPhone) which has a really annoying autocorrect that I think I'm
going to disable soon
