My grammar taught English. And music.

Nice poster. Me like. Me like sine she put up to.

Is it any wonder that I've been trying desperately to get someone to hire me as an editor/proofreader? I can't drive down a city street without seeing multiple blatant errors in signage. I've even reached the point of inability to read an entire novel without finding at least two major grammatical errors or misused words.

I'm not even professionally trained. They just leap out at me. And these from people who presumably speak English as their primary language. Mistranslations and such are understandable, forgiveable, and even highly amusing at times (check out www.engrish.com some time, if you haven't already), but from supposed native speakers, it is just sad.

I despair to realize that very few of us remain who still care about the state of our written language. I won't even get into the SPOKEN tongue here.
