The horror of gr4mm4r

Postby Harina » Tue Jul 22, 2008 6:34 am

Most of the times, I talk to people with horrible grammar in MMORPG (WoW, Guild Wars, Everquest etc.)

Think about it.. if people can understand what I'm reading then why do they have to degrade their vocabulary n2 speeking lyk dis/

At one point in WoW, I met a person who had really horrible grammar it made me lose faith in humanity.

*Fake names to er.. hide their dignity 'cept Ayleid which is me*


[Alandse]: u knw me n my uncle had a frm with lots of hrses
[Ayleid]: Hehe, cool.
[Alandse]: yah now my uncle is pretty old that i hav 2 help uncle jack off my horse.
[Ayleid]: .........
[Ayleid]: Don't you mean "I have to help uncle Jack, off my horse." ..?
[Alandse]: lolyah



See what happens.. XD

This is why I always punctualize and capitalize. To avoid faux pas like that.

Well, what do you expect of them? I once realized, that you have change your kind of writing, since writing like I do right now would take to much time while playing in a group (they might be all dead, before I write "Look out, there comes the guard" or something).

... then there are times that people accidentally say what they really meant and then back peddle to attempt to change the unintentional slip in order to make it sound more reasonable and politically correct...

BUT ... If they were running a Horse Breeding facility, well, sometimes they have to... u know, Help the Horse...

Looks like mine is better, huh? :D

I'm Dutch by the way, and everyone in my guild also always says that my grammar is nearly flawless. :wink:

well, in my head, my grammar is also flawless, but when I have to talk... or write... for the second: it's not always a grammar problem, mostly it's a spelling thing, even though it's not so much different in german^^ (god, I love Word for it's spellingthingy that tells you, when you're wrong - or sometimes even, when you're right^^)

You know what? I knew about that first "h" but I didn't write it by mistake! And about that "A" instead of "a"... you are not that right: after "..." you shouldn't use caps.
