Should of/Could of/Would of

I am no Grammar Nazi but for some reason this reaaaaaaaaaaally grates on me! 

 

 

People not correctly stating "different from" and "opposite to" grates on me. I have to bite my tongue. There's a few others, too.

There's another one like "all intensive purposes" that annoys me but old age means I've forgotten what it is.

Do people no longer write essay at school and university and get taught these things?  Certainly I know last time I was in full-time education it had apparently become acceptable to just write bullet points as answers in exams rather than constructing some kind of argument.

You’re forgetting sails that these days there’s no right and wrong way of doing anything and that most teachers are grateful kids are writing at all.

Time to ship out to a tax haven I say. 

These grammar niggles are just the outward sign of a massive and visible collapse in educational standards in the UK.  My European friends have noticed ……. 

Moral relativism is a disaster for all rule-based systems including grammar, the law and the EU

But if we can’t judge our relatives thank Christingle we can judge our friends, eh.

‘My boss rains over me like he is the Queen’

And no she doesn’t work for POTUS

We don't want to put these sorts of things on a peddlestool.

Jo Frost affect, innit?  Its unasseptable.  I'm adverse to the hole thing.

 

I'd like to know what others think - in fact I'm on tenderhooks.

Not bein funny but why is our immoral relative treated different to our immoral friend? The affect is the same to all intensive purposes.

I am completely disinterested in your silly opinions on this thread.
