Argggh! I hate that. And if you mention it, you get labeled a grammar Nazi. Because, hey, anyone who thinks that the difference between restrictive and nonrestrictive clauses is an important distinction is a hopeless pedant. Then there's the homophones (misspellings aren't as bad as homophones, since at least there I can mentally correct it immediately, instead of having to analyze the whole sentence to figure out what was meant; it's like on Google, where if you spell something wrong, it redirects you to the right page, but if your misspelling matches a common search term, you just get sent to a completely wrong site and you get completely confused). I just don't understand how people can be so blase about these things. Is there some sort of cognitive disorder where people just aren't able to associate two different spelling to the same pronunciation?Isotope_238 wrote:I don't think I really hear a voice, but I do sense inflection and punctuation. When a passage is improperly punctuated or formatted, it grates on me. A poorly placed comma can interrupt the whole flow of a paragraph, and then I mentally trip over the words.
Anyone, after typing for a while, start typing things in their heads as they speak?
