  1. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    Deborah Jay shares a great infographic… are you a Grammar Nerd?

    1. Thanks for the re-blog 😀

  2. What can one say? I think I am a grammar nerd and am probably in desperate need of a semi-colonic irrigation.
    All the very best. Kris.

    1. I fear I may be in the same need… 😉

  3. Guilty as charged !

  4. My name is Tess and I am a grammar nerd. Yes, I am proud of it too! o_O
    Terrific infographic. ❤

    1. It’s great to know there are so many of us out there, isn’t it?
      Thanks for dropping in.

      1. You are welcome. I enjoyed the visit. ❤

    2. My editor always deletes half of my semi colons; I love semi colons (yes I know I put them all over the place but I’m spot on with everything else.) Love semi colons so much I belong to a small writing group named the semi colons. ( yes I named us). In fun my husband says we’re a half assed group – wonder how long it took him to make that up!

      1. Like I said … a semi-colonic irrigation is the only answer. Should put a full-stop to your problem.

      2. I’ll think about that …

      3. Ha ha ha. You’re a scream, Judith. I don’t promise all my grammar and punctuation are spot on, but I know when I see both done wrong. 😦

      4. See what I did?
        I know when I see them done incorrectly.

      5. I qualify to join your group, Judith: please sign me up!

  5. I did Tess- and Deborah, we’re definitely nerds. I’ll hang around here later to see what you think.

  6. Yes, I guess I’m a grammar nerd! Great post Deb. I’ve shared, Incidentally, I share your posts to google but for some reason I can’t find you there to friend? Which name are you using.? 🙂

    1. Ah Tess and Deborah, I’m guessing you didn’t spot my hanging hyphen then?

      1. Ooh, I tend to think that sort of thing is a slip of the finger – I know I make enough of them!

      2. Just showing off really. I’ve been telling my classes about hyphens, hanging hyphens, Em dashes and En dashes and when to use them. Some people would tell me to get a life, I think! hahaha

      3. Lol, that IS our life, isn’t it?

      4. You’re right, of course, Deborah.:)

    2. Cheers Deb. We are already friends on Google, under your ‘Debby “D.G. Kaye” Gies profile; I just added you under your Debby Gies profile too 😀

      1. Thanks Deb. I thought that was weird. Every time I share your posts to my google page and try to ‘plus’ you on it, your name won’t come up, I’ll investigate. 🙂

  7. Reblogged this on Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog and commented:
    Well? Are you? 😀

    1. Thanks for the reblog 😀
      And yes, I am.

  8. I’m a grammar nerd, but I’m not a fan of Grammarly.

    1. I’m sure they’d like to know why…

  9. Interesting on the age group – wouldn’t think 18-14 year old’s would be grammar nerds considering what I’ve seen them write.

    1. Ha! So true 😀
