the english language, everyone

This hit me like a brick

And people wonder why authors use italics and bold and shit so reader’s understand what’s going the fuck on.

And of course I just read this in my head 7 times, stressing each word differently.

Two students, James and John were given a grammar test by their teacher. The question was, “is it better to use “had” or “had had” in this example sentence?”

The teacher collected the tests, and looked over their answers.

James, while John had had “had”, had had “had had.” “Had had” had had a better effect on the teacher.

welcome to the english language

will you marry me = a marriage proposal
will, you, Mary, me = a foursome proposal

Will you, Mary me = Cavewoman Mary helps Will recover from his Amnesia

Will, you marry me. = Will’s time-traveling partner

And people keep trying to tell me that punctuation isn’t important

"this is LAX. If we don’t find them now, they will literally be at the four corners of the earth."

EW that was the absolute worst misuse of “literally” EVER.

Here’s the truth:

However, many grammar sticklers insist that “insure" is only acceptable when it means "to guarantee against financial loss or harm.” So, the argument goes, if the sentence doesn’t involve money or the protection of assets, “ensure” is the better word to use.

Since it doesn’t take a whole lot of work to write “insure” instead of “ensure,” it’s not a bad idea to make that distinction.
