When I was younger, I always felt like I was the same height. Like, I'd be told that I grew, but I wouldn't feel taller or anything. It wasn't until 4th grade when I went back into one of the 1st grade classrooms that I really noticed it. But, then again, I was a strange child.
But doesn't the trick only work if you already know how to spell the word correctly?
Ah, I see. Thanks!
In the school district I grew up in, we never had a proper grammar lesson. I never learned any of these rules until I had to take a grammar course in college. Even then, the college professors tell me all the time that many of the grammar rules are a load of bullshit XD
I think it bothers a lot of people because we're taught it when we're very young. It's like "How do you forget that?"
Don't get me wrong. People make mistakes. Hell, I know I've done it by accident before.
Also, I just took a class for teaching where I was basically taught that traditional grammar is a load of shit because it's based off of Latin, and that we shouldn't freak out if a student, say, splits an infinitive.
I have failed as an English Major.
On another note, I never learned that you had to put it as "not to" rather than "to not." What rule would that be?
Damn, that's a little excessive. (And this is coming from an English major XD)
Thank you for posting that. I was going to say the same thing, but I was afraid I'd get yelled at.
I don't think anyone should expect their relationship to last, but if it does, then good for them.
I have no idea why that was made me submit that anonymously.
Er, still happened in the movie, so it did happen.
I remember someone telling me that they changed a lot of the books for the American audience. They "Americanized" most of the text, except for the dialogues. I could be wrong though.
No, it wasn't. Adult Swim wanted to make their own version of it, but the creator of Spongebob wouldn't let them.
I'm so glad we're all so smart. _^
But a lot of teachers teach it as it meaning "where are you"
And I still found the joke funny. I just might have to use this line if I ever have to teach this play. XD
The Lion King and Aladdin video games for the SNES were awesome though. But yes, usually they are horrible.
