Fibro fog, pain, writing sandwiched in between. Quotes. Sermon notes. Encouragement.
|Sometimes you find helpful things on Facebook. I saw a graphic that I liked. It said, "Alot is not a word. You do not write alittle, abunch, acantaloupe, or aporkchop. Stop writing alot."
That one sure did get A LOT of discussion. The most "intellectual" amongst the commenters said that if society changes, then the dictionary eventually changes.
I suppose that means that since people on social media cannot figure out whether to use their, there or they're that eventually it won't matter, at least according to that gentleman.
In the meantime, it still does matter. The TX newspaper for which I worked over a decade ago still uses "a lot" and "they're/there/their" as some of the tests to determine whether or not one gets hired.
