Engrish 101

Let's start off with common mistakes in the homonym category. Taken from various posts by RS members.

Number one misused one is..........

Their, as in it is their car.

Instead, people use there.

Their - There- They're

Another one.......

Two, to, too.


Chalk - Chock

Kids and their chalk, as opposed to that car should have a wheel chock in front of the tire.

Quite common = its vs it's

"It's" is a contraction of the words "it is". Its is a word used to show possession, as in, the car had its tire stolen.

Break vs brake is so common on RS, lol.

Break = I want to break *****'s neck. (edited out a certain RS member's name, hee hee, hue hue, pew pew.)
Brake = He loves the taste of brake fluid.

List for adding more

plane vs plain
bare vs bear
buy vs by
desert vs dessert
principal vs principle


AND........ RS' favourite, wonder vs wander


All your base are belong to us

another common one here is "would've" which people write as "would of"

this one is quite annoying as it's not just a spelling error and means that people actually don't understand what the words they're saying means.

English as a language has so much funny slang and more and more acronyms these days.

The state of the English language hurts right in them feels. LOL.

Epic fail. Troll a person. The list of English slang goes on and on.

Acronyms are commonly used these days in text messaging: lol, fml, yolo, iirc, lmao, imo, wtf, etc.

My all time favorite English slang: "That's a sick car!!"

Browsing CL for furniture lately:

It's DINING room, not DINNING room.

Where does that even come from? It's not even close to any other word! Infuriating...

I've noticed it a lot on CL too.

Unless it's Mark's Work Wearhouse. Lol.

I guess that's why they changed their name to just Mark's.

Thank you, a perfect segue for lesson number two.

Double consonant rule.

A vowel followed by a single consonant is long sounding, while a double consonant results in a short sounding vowel.

Of course, there are exceptions, but generally true. It's more a spelling rule, but part of grammar nonetheless.

Oh, forgot........... some samples.

But, before that is done, let's review vowels.

Vowels are:

A, E, I, O, U, and sometimes Y.

Y becomes a vowel when it takes on the sound of one of the other true vowels.

Like Candy, why, etc. Yellow is not.

So, consonants are the other letters.

More later when I come back from concert in the park........ Dear......... oops, Deer Lake.

When people don't care for something they sometimes use I could care less. That means that you care slightly for it therefore you COULD care less. If you did not care for it at all then you couldn't care less.
