Re: watch your language! (or don't)
for those of you who have never done it before, try intentionally sticking a grammatical error in your response. seriously. enjoy it. love it. embrace it. do it once in a while where it simply won't matter and i'm sure it will be a good thing for you. be alive. be free. use a word that your 13 year old daughter uses. say something grammatically wrong and enjoy it. i bet your sex life will improve because of it. maybe.
I speak with children at their level of understanding, using my knowledge of grammar and diction to make the experience interesting for both sides. I speak with non-native English users at their level of vocabulary, and use my knowledge of English to avoid to complex constructions, negative assertions, puns, and ambiguities. I see no benefit in promulgating substandard use of language.
sigh. i need to watch a movie.
Perhaps so. I'll bet you won't seek out a badly filmed movie with poor actors performing under incompetent direction, will you?
