In honor of the holiday, here are a few refreshers of my favorite grammar mistakes. And by 'favorite' I mean most-hated-make-my-skin-crawl-OMG-why-are-people-stupid errors:
AHHHH!! If I had a dollar for every time I see these two words use incorrectly AT MY JOB I would be a millionaire. I don't understand why highly educated people still struggle with this concept.
YOUR = possessive, YOU'RE = you+are
Similarly, this mistake drives me just as crazy. (I am guilty of being lazy and omitting the apostrophe sometimes though, so don't hate me. I KNOW the difference)
ITS = possessive, IT'S = it is
I love Grammar Lady. She's the smartest person I know.
THERE = a place, THEIR = possessive, THEY'RE = they+are
You can find these posters and many more at Zazzle. I think they're delightful and just a tad bit snarky, which I love :)
