Random grammar tip #1

Grammar tips – brought to you by a random non-grammarian.

First, let me say that I’m not a member of the grammar police. I’m not even a grammar volunteer deputy. I’m an every day English speaker, who took a grammar class and wants to share knowledge. I mean, isn’t that what the internet is all about?

 

Random grammar tip #1

I feel badly.”

It literally means that you’re bad at feeling, since the word badly is describing feel. So, the statement is incorrect, unless you’re a psychopath or sociopath (if you are, you should probably work on your ability to feel with a therapist).

Instead say: “I feel bad.”

  1. The older I get the worse everything gets. It’s like those spelling, punctuation, and grammar brain cells are winking out at a frightening pace. I can poke the rules back in remaining brain cells but I run the risk of using up a brain cell dedicated to something like breathing and heartbeat. I think that’s what kills a lot of older people. The grocery list gets plugged into a vital organ control center and bleep! Game over. I do appreciate you helping out with this problem otherwise, it could be curtains for Lord Geezer.
