      How many of those 20 points really annoy me?

      1, 12, 14 and 15 definitely get to me!

      Looking at some of the others taught me some points that I was not aware of!

        love this! The lack of understanding when it comes to the possessive apostrope sometimes amazes me!

          that damned possessive apostrophe...........

          Makes me laugh, I was rather innocently told the joke after which the book "eats, shoots and leaves" was named, I only knew the mucky version.....

              I sometimes get confused with the I/me thing (as in number 6) but the explanation Lorraine from Aylesbury uses just gets me confused Hey, ho. I consider myself very lucky that our English teacher allowed us to have one 35 minute lesson on grammar just because we were all a bit confused in French and someone asked in English about grammar. Without that we would have had no grammar teaching! Still didn't help, and we got no further than "Verbs are doing words"...

                Consider yourself very very lucky Indri as that was 35 minutes more than I ever had in school! Don't think they believed in teaching it when we were at school and I certainly wouldn't have got my A grade in English Language if there had been any grammer questions! I seriously think that's why I've never been able to learn other languages as nouns, verbs etc are so important to the sentence structures but are a complete mystery to me.

                  My absolute biggest irritation is "you're" and "your" - they are two entirely different words!

                  I don't know why I'm such a stickler when it comes to grammar and spelling ... I can only assume it's a genetic thing ... my mum was training to become an English teacher when a little "suprise" (me) scuppered her plans! Maybe I listened to her training whilst in the womb!

                  For those of you not familiar with my blog - I did do a tongue-in-cheek look at apostrophe abuse.
