I know this should be for some other club, but I'd like to... well... "Educate" people on proper usage of words, phrases, and grammar in general.

So please, allow me to present:
LESSONS ON GRAMMAR
由 btflash

I'm on kind of a short mind-set at the moment, so these "lessons" will definitely grow in number as time goes on and I add lessons.

PLEASE NOTE: These lessons are set in the order in which that I think of them and add them. If 你 would like a lesson to be added, please post what the topic of 说 lesson would be in the 评论 below 或者 Private Message me. I will gladly add the lesson if it is reasonable.

If 你 think that I am incorrect on something, please tell me and state your reasoning. I understand that I am only human, and that I make mistakes.


First Lesson: Your/You're.

I can't even tell 你 how many people get these words mixed up. That's why this is the first one to come to mind.
The word "Your" is used as a possessive, 或者 when saying that an object belongs to someone. It should not be used to describe someone.

"Hey, Billy, your fly is down." = Correct
"Hey, Billy, you're fly is down." = Incorrect


The word "You're" is a completely different word. You're is a "Contraction" that is short for "You Are," and it is used to usually describe someone in some shape way. It cannot, and should not, be used as a possessive in place of "your."

"Robert, you're a terrible person." = Correct
"Robert, your a terrible person." = Incorrect




秒 Lesson: Their/There/They're


This is another set of commonly confused words that I see a lot around here. Contrary to 流行的 belief, "there" should not be used instead of the other two words.

The word "Their" is used as a possessive, 或者 when saying that an object belongs to someone, in place of someone's 或者 multiple people's name(s).

"All of their 猫 are dead." = Correct
"All of there 猫 are dead." = Incorrect


The word "There" is used when a person/object is used instead of using a location's name when pointing out an object being in that location. It is NOT used for possessive, nor is it used as a conjecture in place of "They are".

"The sandbox is over there." = Correct
"All of there 猫 are dead." = Incorrect
"There going to the park" = Incorrect


The word "They're" is a "Contraction" that is often used to replace "They are."

"They're going to the park" = Correct
"There going to the park" = Incorrect



Third Lesson: To/Too/Two

Yet another set of commonly-confused words (gee, there are a lot of them!), due to the fact that these are incredibly close when it comes to spelling. No, "To" is NOT used for everything. I literally had to look these things up because it's a bit hard to explain.

The word "To" is what is called a "Preposition," which means it usually comes before a present verb used as either a noun, adjective, 或者 adverb. It is also commonly used in an exchange.

"I'm going to give this box to Joe." = Correct

"I want to go to the park" = Correct

"I want to get a toy, to." = Incorrect


The word "Too" is mainly used, much like a contraction, instead of the words "as well."

"I want to get a toy, too." = Correct

"I want to get a toy, to" = Incorrect


The word two is the number 2. It's not used for anything else. Just the number 2.

"I have two Pokemon games." = Correct

"I have to Pokemon games." = Incorrect

"I have too Pokemon games." = Incorrect



Please 评论 on any lessons that 你 would want added, and I hope 你 have gained something from these little "Lessons."
A great song for a great pony.

Meadow was laying in her 床, 床上 not feeling well.

Nikki: I'll come back around noon to check on you, and see how you're feeling.
Meadow: Thanks sis.
Nikki: *Walks out of Meadow's room*
Meadow: *Looks out the window*
Nikki: *Walking across the street, and into the station*
Meadow: *Gets out of her bed*

What's this? She was pretending to be sick! Just as soon as Nikki was gone, and had no way to look at the house from where she was currently standing, Meadow went for her car, and decided to go.... 你 guessed it....

Nikki, and Meadow were having breakfast.
