Petty and with no supporting evidence.<quoted text>Not beginning a sentence with a conjunction has been a grammar rule since the beginning. A conjunction is a connecting word and can never be used as a starting word for a sentence.
It is never correct to end a sentence with a preposition, regardless of the incorrect grammar being taught in business classes today.
"Look it up;"--It is grammatically incorrect to end a sentence with a semi-colon. You have a habit of doing this.
"You,re wrong"—You used a comma instead of an apostrophe.
sentence;--You used “sentence’ as the end of the sentence yet used a semi-colon instead of a period to end the sentence.
"And should it be, and it need not be, the "G" should be capitalized, not the whole word;"--You incorrectly began a sentence with a conjunction and ended it with a semi-colon, both of which are incorrect.
"nu ber4"-- You misspelled “number” and “number4” should have a space between number and 4.
Pont—You misspelled “point”.
“Isntant” is misspelled.
"should end with a semi-colon, not a period;"--You ended the sentence with a semi-colon, which one can never do.
“It's my second language”—You neglected to put a period at the end of the sentence.
In conclusion, I suggest you learn the rules for punctuation. Correct punctuation is necessary for the reader to get the correct meaning of a sentence.
Let's first get rid of the typos. I make them by the dozen and readily admit it. I'll no doubt even make more in this very post. They are not misspelled words nor grammatical errors. They are typos, finger hitting the wrong key and perfectly suitable for Topix. The following words of mine are typos and I unhesitatingly voice my mea culpa, but will continue to make them : You,re (the cheapeast of corrections, but then, that is what you are : Cheap. Nu ber. Wow. Isntant. Another one. And I neglected the period at the end of the sentence. Guilty. Oh, and number4. WTG Sherlock;
Okay, you once more state that "Not beginning a sentence with a conjunction has been a grammar rule since the beginning. A conjunction is a connecting word and can never be used as a starting word for a sentence." To that nebulous statment, you add the preposition at the end of the sentence. Well, Ms Grammarian, I asked you to quote me the English grammar rule to prove your contention. Still waiting. And you'll never find it. Why? It's in your imagination, it does not exist;
You have no idea how to and when to use a semi-colon as evidenced by your grade 3 rulings. Again, Mr Oxford states : "the punctuation mark used to separate parts of a sentence where there is a more distinct break than that represented by a comma;"
My punctuation is spot-on (LRS tm reg'd).
