I`M!! Or I AM!
Way to fail. You used is-is in the one situation in which it is acceptable, and then claimed that it`s an exception and the guy is wrong. I bet you didn`t even watch the video.
"What the problem is, is that kids are on they`re summer break...this guy is probably an english teacher or some kinda of education freak...something to bug my english teacher about when i start school lol"It`s "their" not "they`re". This `freak` should help you with your spelling and probably even your grammar.
Yeah, you could for example google your own name instead. Or be here!
woudn`t [is that] link?
The opther clause would then be [that guy is an 8diot], no...that`s independednt, it can stand on it`s own...
It should read:What the problem is is that this guy is an ass. Shoudn`t it read-what the problem is, is that this guy is an ass.
Two dependednt clauses.
[What the problem is][is that this guy is an ass]
You shouldn`t have commas in that sentence.
It should read:What the problem is is that this guy is an ass.
I don`t care if you occasionally and approprietly say WTF, PPL, OMG etc, and I don`t blame you for the occasional typo, but PLEASE, presewrve the the sacred rites of Stndard English
Full marks, as well, to goaliejerry. It`s incorrect to say, "Everyone should bring their lunch." That just makes you sound like a 12 year old crack whore. The correct way is to say, "Everyone should bring his lunch" or "Everyone should bring his or her lunch."
...and what`s with people starting to say "Where are you at" all of a sudden?
I WANT TO say IT instead. "When a person goes to the store, it pays with a credit card." Since I am referring to an undefined singular person, "it" is perfectly proper. That is all I am saying. Impersonal, yes, but correct.
English is weird because it forces us to do the whole “he or she” thing.
Screw it, ITS IT. A person is an it. I am an it. Each one of
he asked the painter to leave a bigger gap between Wagon and and and and and Horses
that part had me cracking up
WRONG: The problem is is money.RIGHT: The problem is money.
WRONG: What the problem is money.RIGHT: What the problem is is money.
Choose one, don`t mix them.
It`s similar to the "Irregardless" thing. "Regardless" or "irrespective", choose one. Don`t try to mash them together. `Ir` and `less` are both negatives, and thus cancel each other. "Irregardless" means they didn`t not have regard, which of course means they did have regard. It`s like saying "non regard-free".
Why do I care about your grammar? The reason we care about other people`s grammar is that we like to be able to read (or listen to) something and understand it the first time. We don`t like having to go over something fifteen times to work out what someone is trying to say.
just try thinking about it. you`ll see it is is not as complicated as he says it is is.
What the problem is, is that this is stupid.
the problem is is is is that this aint an epidemic, its a gramatical fudgeing error
Yes. Yes I would. And I do. Now go away.
You`re arguing semantics really, when people say Americans they generally mean a person from the United States.
THEIR summer break.
What the problem is, is that most Americans don`t know their own language. "There", "their", "they`re" is a far too common mistake and i read it more than once on this site every day.
Go see for yourself in other comments :P
Those are some problems, how many times would you hear "is is" in normal conversation?
Also..was he stoned?
Coma`s people. They have a purpose and "is, is" is perfectly acceptable grammer when used correctly!
Nice clip show at the end.
just just playing
