Moderaters, I apologize, but I don't know where this should go, but I wanted to let everyone know where to get these 2nd amendment blinkies...... My GF made em... :D

The Girlfriend says:

If you use these or save these to your computer, just right click on the blinkie and then click "save image as" Make sure you save it as a .gif file. Oh yeah, and the BF came up with these sayings... :D

How'd you miss that "nazi's" should be "nazis?" And punctuation goes inside the quotation marks!

I think the only rules of grammar that are actually debatable are whether lists of three or more should have a comma before the conjunction (A, B, and C vs. A, B and C), and whether plurals of acronyms should be apostrophized (VCR's vs. VCRs).

As for t'other, according to the "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" book (which I will probably not finish due to it not being as funny as I expected) the British "pick and choose" whether punctuation is to be placed within or without the quotation marks. So that's MY excuse. :D

I can't believe I found one no one else has mentioned - - actually guys your TJBNGP'S!!! " The Jack Booted Nazi Grammer Police " (now what did I spell wrong ????) Since, by usage, (TJBNGP = The Jack Booted Nazi Grammar Police,) the word "Police" is plural, there is no need for the terminal letter "S."

But, even if it DID need that letter to form the plural, the addition of the letter "S" noes not necessitate an apostrophe. Oh, and, the "S," not being an abbreviation for anything, should be lower case. So: "TJBNPs."

The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications, rather than German, which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five-year phased plan for what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for short).

In the first year, "s" will be used instead of the soft "c". Sertainly, sivil servants will resieve this news with joy. Also, the hard "c" will be replaced with "k". Not only will this klear up konfusion, but typewriters kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced by "f". This will make words like "fotograf" 20 per sent shorter.

In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible.

Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent "e"s in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go.

By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" by z" and "w" by v

During ze fifz year, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou", and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.

After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech ozer.

"You" is singular, "Y'all" is dual, and "all y'all" is plural. Where you from, boy?Being from Mobile Alabama I guess I'm not all that well versed in Southern English as should oughta be, but I ain't never heard nobody use all y'all unless they were addressing a large group on an individual level
As in
"All y'all shut up " meaning each and every individual here shut up
As opposed to
"Y'all come over here and watch this guy get his ass kicked" meaning the group needs to come over and watch

The plural of "you all" ain't "all you all"

I know cause I looked it up

RyanM
September 23, 2005, 11:19 AM
Actually, "you" is already plural (it's also the objective form, like her and him; nominative form is "ye"). The singular form is thou/thee.

joab
September 23, 2005, 12:17 PM
Y'all (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=ya'll)

You
you
pronoun

1. The person or people, etc spoken or written to, with or without others
Example: When are you all coming to visit us?
2. Any or every person.
Example: You don't often see that nowadays

you-all

You (plural).
Example: You-all take care now

joab
September 23, 2005, 12:29 PM
you-all (yôl) also y'all (yôl)
pron. Chiefly Southern U.S.
You. Used in addressing two or more people or referring to two or more people, one of whom is addressed.
Regional Note: The single most famous feature of Southern United States dialects is the pronoun y'all, sometimes heard in its variant you-all. You-all functions with perfect grammatical regularity as a second person plural pronoun, taking its own possessive you-all's (or less frequently, your-all's, where both parts of the word are inflected for possession): You-all's voices sound alike. Southerners do not, as is sometimes believed, use you-all or y'all for both singular and plural you. A single person may only be addressed as you-all if the speaker implies in the reference other persons not present: Did you-all [you and others] have dinner yet? You and you-all preserve the singular/plural distinction that English used to have in thou and ye, the subject forms of singular and plural you, respectively (thee and you were the singular and plural object forms). The distinction between singular thou/thee and plural ye/you began to blur as early as the 13th century, when the plural form was often used for the singular in formal contexts or to indicate politeness, much as the French use tu for singular and familiar "you," and vous for both plural and polite singular "you." In English, the object form you gradually came to be used in subject position as well, so that the four forms thou, thee, ye, and you collapsed into one form, you. Thou and thee were quite rare in educated speech in the 16th century, and they disappeared completely from standard English in the 18th. However, the distinction between singular and plural you is just as useful as that between other singular and plural pronoun forms, such as I and we. In addition to y'all, other forms for plural you include you-uns, youse, and you guys or youse guys. Youse is common in vernacular varieties in the Northeast, particularly in large cities such as New York and Boston, and is also common in Irish English. You-uns is found in western Pennsylvania and in the Appalachians and probably reflects the Scotch-Irish roots of many European settlers to these regions. You guys and youse guys appear to be newer innovations than the other dialectal forms of plural you. See Note at you-uns.

".....and probably reflects the Scotch-Irish roots ..."

Scotch is a drink, Scots are a race of people in the Northern British Isles.

I believe "Scots" is proper use. The later usage of "Scotch" for the people is in contradiction to earlier use.

Does common misuse become acceptable at some point?

I stand corrected... from the New Websters Practical English Handbook:

"The possesive forms of the personal pronouns and the possesive form of the pronoun who are never written with an apostrophe. ... The correct forms to use in order to show possession are the following: my, mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours, theirs, whose. Do not place an apostrophe either before or after the s in any of these words."

Well, BluesBear, you made me look it up, and I found it... sigh. I was wrong. Thanks.

No. If you assume that " its' " is the possessive form of "it," it then follows that " hims' " is the possessive form of him. Similarly, if you assume that "it's" is possessive, so too must "him's" be.

i feel lucky that i had an english teacher who cared enough to harp on "minor" points like punctuation, in public high school no less. it should be noted that in a venue like this people tend to type how they talk and that's not necessarily a bad thing. even classic literature includes gramatical errors or unusual punctuation in dialogue. you'll also find that people may punctuate in a slightly unorthodox manner to show pauses and emphasis as though they were speaking. further, i might add that there is a big difference between a typo and a spelling error. as for my own disdain of the shift key - i'm mostly just being lazy but ever since reading e. e. cummings i decided that capitalization of the word "i" but not "you" is pretty egotistical, don't you think? another factor that complicates spelling and grammar on this forum is that i suspect a fair number of folks come home after work, crack a beer and start posting. people who know how to speak and spell (HA!, get it?) get to be all thumbs and their posts can be a little cryptic. none of this bothers me all that much. what bothers me is when i see a post saying that they wrote their congresscritter or some journalist about some issue or other and it is obvious that they are incapable of writing clearly. that just makes us all look bad. worst part is that the journalist may get that letter printed so thousands see us as knuckle dragging neanderthals.
