    Default Your Grammaticality

    How well can you use proper grammar, and what grammatical tendencies might you exhibit in your writings?

    I have a knack for using perfects, which sometimes works against me.

    It's obviously impossible for you to determine your own competence for writing with proper grammar, so you can use benchmarks as a means of branding your ability.

    I try to maintain reasonable grammar. But sometimes, either because I'm distracted by something, or because I make careless edits to my text, it occasionally ends up being complete word saladwiki. I think my most common grammatical error is to use "it's" where I should use "its". I know the rule, but for some reason I don't follow it.

    That's in English anyway. My Swedish spelling and grammar is absolutely atrocious. I write the language so seldom it's fallen into serious disrepair.

    Also, the paper you link to doesn't appear to have been published in any peer reviewed journal, so I'm not sure how much stock I want to put in it.

    I had great grammar when I came to America, but after spending years here, it slowly adapted to not so great grammars I hear. Sigh. Usually you'll notice countries with English as one of their official language, may have an accent, but they have very proper grammar compared to most people who were raised in USA.

    Aha, I know exactly what my problem is. I would use subjunctives in cases when they're grammatically more correct than indicatives. This causes me problems at times, because it could end up making me sound overly formal or hypocritically educated. XD

    Example? Here:

    Instead of: I wish it was raining.
    I'd say: I wish it were raining.

    Instead of: If you ate it, you'll be dead by now.
    I'd say: If you had eaten it, you would be dead by now.


    Can't help it...I took Latin for six years, so subjunctives have become so embedded that I can't seem to avoid them completely. Another thing I got out from my Latin classes is the distinction between "who" and "whom".

    Instead of: Who did you see?
    I'd say: Whom did you see?

    Yes, I've had friends making fun of me for sounding "old" >.>

    My use of English grammar is pretty good, as it should be since it's my native language.

    I passed two college level Reading and Writing courses with flying colors, and received compliments on my writing Portfolios both times.

    The only time I put less focus on it is when i'm online (unless it's for something important.) I don't put an anal-retentive focus on it, though, and I can't really stand people who do unless they have a valid reason for it.

    I do my best to express as much information in as few words as possible, due to the fact that that the alternative is very time consuming and annoying; as such, work to constantly improve my grammar and vocabulary to increasingly condense information into smaller spaces for maximum efficiency.

    When I'm writing something, I tend to use proper grammar, unless it is on messenger or in chat. When I am speaking, my grammar changes depending on whom I'm talking to.

    My grammar is excellent, but the essays grades I get are adequate because I don't enjoy writing narratives, autobiographical, or anything else for that matter. For witty comments, I'm strict. For humor, I'll use the popular shorthand crap. Otherwise, I'm regularly checking my sentences for grammar. Bad grammar irks me, especially if it the user makes no effort to correct themselves.

    I have good enough grammar that it gets my point across to people; most of the time anyway, so that's all I'm really concerned with. I do have the tendency to use the word "Mayhaps" a lot in my writing. My bro got me hooked on the word, and now it's stuck on me like Paul Ryan's budget plan sticks to the GOP. Damn near inseparable it is.

    My thanks to Xey Oiz for the awesome new set.

    You don't sound old! ^^ I do the same at times.

    As for me with grammar...I think I have well grammar O.o though I have the same problem as Eris, the "its"/"it's" thing, I don't follow it half the time. Also, it's hard for me to chat with someone who doesn't even try with grammar >.< like, "ain't" I dislike that word, and the various other odd words that people have created that makes text or speak a bit different.

    Default Re: Your Grammaticality

    It doesn't matter how well you know the theory--if you have to practice all the time you're bound to make mistakes here and there. I know most grammar including non-intuitive rules and the implicit grammatical rules (i.e. natural speech) which contradict explicit grammatical rules. I still type grammatical nonsense here and there. I will even knowingly break rules from time to time.

    What have you done? you can't use "LOL" on the internet! it is not part of proper English grammar!

    Just kidding. :] Use LOL all you want. My preferred alternative is usually "lolwut" when I feel it's appropriate.

    My spelling sucks and my grammar is meh at best. Though it's a step up from 95% of the rest of the net. Really how hard is it to at least capitalize and use periods? Not to mention using text lingo when they have a full keyboard at their disposal. All I'll say is yay for spell check.

    I personally consider my grammar to be very good, although it could be improved in some respects. I can tell the difference between common nouns, concrete and possessive nouns, adjectives, verbs, and adverbs. I'm not really phased by the challenge of using apostrophes, as I tend to use them a lot to shorten words such as "I would" and "they are". I wish I had better memory to use collective nouns though, especially to specify groups of certain animals. In writing I tend to use sentences that conform to natural speech rather than to that considered to be grammatically "correct".

    My use of grammar is decent enough, but I tend to use commas when I shouldn't.

    "To save you, I could do anything."
    "Together, or not at all."
    "It's called marriage."

    Kinda good but no good, like Bubblegum Pop said when i RP or type reports it's generally okay but otherwise it's about how i type.

    I think my usage of the English grammar is good. At least good enough for conversations. i tend to use a lot of run-on sentences though. it also takes some time before i finish a decent essay because I edit again and again. Not that i'm a perfectionist, i'm just not a good writer.
    MOVE ON. DO SOMETHING BETTER.

    I consider my online grammar to be downright terrible.
    I think it comes down to three things really.
    1. I'm REALLY lazy. True story. Good education, I'm well versed in the correct usage of wonderful grammatical devices such as the majestic semicolon, but I can't be bothered using them. Really, periods and commas do it for me.
    2. I speak in the colloquial a lot and it heavily influences my writing style much of the time. I try to be good on here to avoid bans for swearing, but you might still notice the ol' unnecessarily abbreviated word or even omitted word which makes a sentence make less sense from time to time.
    3. Most of my net usage these days is via my iPhone or other portable device, many of which have auto-correction I leave on thanks to my giant pudgy man fingers. Unfortunately sometimes it 'corrects' things in ways that actually give an unintended result be it poor grammar or entirely different words. Usually I'll notice and manually retype, sometimes I'll miss it. Trying to type 'Hell' in particular without it becoming 'he'll' tends to irk me. I use the word an awful lot.

    I don't think my grammar is particularly amazing, but I do try to spell everything I say correctly. I want what I say to make sense so i try to be as clear as possible. I can use as good of grammar as I want to. It all depends on how much energy i choose to exert.
