Memes Make Writing Rules More Fun!

Please excuse my dear Aunt Sally.

My very educated mother just served us noodles. (Anyone else still sad about Pluto? Just me?)

They're mnemonics. They're usually silly. And they help us to remember random things. But in this lovely age of technology the internet has brought us something even better.

They're not just for Chuck Norris anymore.

English is often coined as one of the most difficult languages to learn given all the rules and take-backsies of said rules in particular though rarely make-sensible situations. Never fear. The internet, as always, has got your back.

Everyone, every one. Alot, a lot. For help remembering when to hit that space bar . . .

I'm not judging your story either way. Just be sure YOU know what you mean . . .

It's like the internet has eyes and sees into my documents o.O
tricky, tricky . . .

Don't lie. You've done it too.

Also not to be confused with Yar, which is, obviously, the language of the Pirate.

What are your favorite grammar memes?

  1. I have to look up the rules for lay, lie, laid, lain every time I use them. I try to avoid 'em as much as possible. But still, ugh. :)

  2. We need one for breathe and breath. Because I'm tired of looking it up.

  3. Also:
    n. (fkt)
    1. Feeling or emotion, especially as manifested by facial expression or body language

    Just to mess with ESL students.
