So, I decided whilst writing these posts it was only fair for me to target my own grammar vice – the comma splice.
Comma splices occur when two main or independent clauses are joined together using a comma instead of using a full stop, semi-colon, co-ordinator or conjunction. 552 more words
so i just read this excrutiatingly long tumblr post and like i don’t even have a tumblr or go on tumblr ever but it just happen to be on my twitter feed and of course i was scrolling for a long time because im procrastinating on my history homework which is actually already overdue but anyways so this long post was some dumb story that everybody is like omg so funny haha but it was so long and it had no punctuation marks and it was an entire run on sentence and i worked so hard reading it because i thought itd be funny but then like the sort of punchline if you can even call it that because it wasnt even really funny but the punchline came and and i was like okay really seriously because it was really dumb and such a huge waste of time so like i just want to say that punctuation exists for a reason so please use it because its really painful like actually physically painful as well as mentally and emotionally and metaphorically painful to read long posts by perfectly capable people who dont use things like commas and periods and apostrophes i mean it makes me cringe to see english such a beautiful language okay kidding but not because language is pretty beautiful but it kills me to see english be used so atrociously and then run on sentences dont even get me started because they just irritate me so much so please just stop.
