I've just read too much fail and stupid and terrible things lately, and I feel the need for betterment. Since I can't really do anything to teach uneducated slobs who are saying terrible things about the Japan disaster, is it a rule that if you mention Pearl Harbor as something against Japan, it's an automatic lose in the conversion, like bringing up Nazis? I've decided to offer grammar help.

Not like, beta'ing, but more like... If you have any grammar questions, bring them up here! For example, when to use semicolon or how to properly format quotes for dialogue. Now, I'm not saying I know everything, BUT I'll answer your questions to the best of my ability! Language questions and discussions are all A-Okay here too! (e.g. why are romance languages so different from this language, etc.?)

Oh! And if any other grammar/language nerds want to answer questions or have discussions, go ahead! If we all learn something new on this post, my job is done. <3

EDIT: Shut up, Dagger. >.>;; You saw no spelling mistakes here. It was all an ILLUSION! @____@

OH, FOR FUCK'S SAKE. Tell me that assholes are not linking Pearl Harbor and the earthquake. OH, YOU FUCKERS.

I hate no grammar questions. Um, I have always confused "concrete" and "secrete," which is weird. Like, I always have to go look up which word I mean when I want to use one. I'm not sure how to make that a question! WTF is wrong with me? :D

LOL, I could edit that to say "I have no," which is what it is supposed to say. But I feel like the "I HATE" sums up my rage at THE FUCKERS, so it all works out in the end.

That is kinda weird. XD In this case, I'd make a word association to remember which is which? It could help. Like secrete is like seeping out of something? And concrete is... Hmm, I can't think of good word association here other than something you can smack dumbasses' heads against to crack their skulls open. Ahem. >>;;

You're adorable. XD I have weird words I confuse too. I know I do, but it is morning, and I can't remember them. Lol. XD

There's a difference between a spelling error and a typo.

That is all.

When to use semicolons: ALL THE TIME EVERYWHERE.

Psh; Semicolons can be used in place of all other punctuation;
