It’s not that I want to do this, it’s just that I can’t not do it. I’ve been driven to distraction by a couple of crazy grammar mistakes that seem to be pervasive. It’s jarring to hear and read them over and over and over.
I’m working on trying get past the constant incorrect uses of “good” and “well” — I’m not even sure many people use well anymore unless they’re talking about a place where one can pull up a bucket of water. It appears that “I’m good” is becoming the accepted response to “how are you?”
Maybe that’s what one means when referring to the evolution of language.
|I almost forgot this one. It too is appearing everywhere.|
For today’s rant I would like to address the infuriating misuses of “I” and “me”. Since when did I become the object of a preposition, as in: I told everyone about him and I? And, since when did “me” become the subject of a verb as in: Me and him (oh, yes it’s probably logical to say him in this context. . .) fell in love.
I is a subject pronoun and me is an object pronoun as all of you know, I’m simply venting to vent. I feel so much better. (Here’s hoping I didn’t make any egregious grammar errors today.)
OK, as My-Reason-For-Living-In-France would say, “Explain me that.”
