English pronunciation- "If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world." Makes you think about how hard the English language must be to learn!

There are some people, and companies that I would really like to send this to...

I'm serious! i hate voicemails so much, and the operator takes forever to list off the entire date, time, and phone number. and if you have any saved msgs, you have to go thru them first. i leave them on my phone for days. then i swear three more people will leave one. i need to figure out how to change my voicemail so they know i will hold a grudge!! rrgh.

Your in America 2.

    People keep repinning this as something funny but I think it's funnier that they don't realize that the owner of the car doesn't know English well enough to notice the grammatical error. I'm glad that someone finally did!

Sooo bad. Really. Very bad. But I must be in a "bad humor" mood this morning, because I laughed...

Why grammar matters every day! Also, it doesn't hurt to know a little algebra to remember some of the basic rules :)


I love the intricacies of language.

    That's not a double positive forming a negative. It's sarcasm. The teacher was correct and the student incorrect.

  • Nate Marshall

    Interesting comments. Clearly it originates from sarcasm, but it is so well known now as a phrase that you can say "yeah right" in any tone of voice and the meaning remains the same. So my vote is for the student being correct.

  • Kristen Nickel

    I find it hard to justify the student's response as a double positive because 'yeah, right' is such a simplified statement. With double negatives, the 'not's, 'no's, 'ain't's, and the like can be spread out through the sentence, and it still makes sense. Can you do the same with 'yeah, right'?

  • Karen Wiley

    yeah, sure.

  • Kristen Nickel

    That's not as well known.

Humorous texting infographic displaying the common emoticons and the faces that they would match up with. It is successful in conveying the extremities and triteness of the digital faces since the "human" faces are so distorted and comical. I think it could be enhanced by color. The format works well as it is simple and leaves out any confusion as to which faces is being compared.

Spelling, the thing that no one seems to know anymore. :)
