70, 85, if you're going to correct grammar, do it right. It is "AN" FML because "F" has a vowel SOUND. The consonants f, h, l, m, n, and r are all preceded by the article "an" instead of "a" due to starting with a vowel sound even though they are consonants. Also, to those of you correcting OP's use of "to"...OP was obviously quoting their professor's use of the word; hence the quotation marks. Think before you take the energy to post something criticizing others' mistakes.
85/137, I was referring to you erroneously saying "a FML." I don't consider myself a "grammar nazi" but it's a little annoying when people correct others but are wrong. Most of the annoyance was at 70, though, not you. They "corrected" someone by telling them to say "a FML" -_- And I thought #1's comment was funny, too...some people just didn't get it lol
193, I get what you're saying, I do. However I corrected no one, which makes your statement false xP. Anyway yea the a was a typo that I overlooked. When I typed that I was walking to class and talking to a friend..so looking at the keyboard was kind of at the bottom of my priority list.
115 the only circumstances in which your lengthly grammar correction make any sense is when you are saying just a letter. You may have meant that but you should be more specific. Examples: a noun, A foot, a mountain, a mouse, a lake, a moose, a rat, a heart, etc. Ps. You forgot Letters "s" and"x" in your list
Wow I had that happen to me before, I told my instructor I thought he was jealous because he couldn't write something so good.
If you want to prove that it isn't plagiarized then google search the phrases. If nothing comes up exact then you make your point. If your exact phrases do come up, well then...you know. But definitely FYL for your professor correcting and using the wrong form of "to".
"If you want to prove that it isn't plagiarized then google search the phrases. If nothing comes up exact then you make your point. If your exact phrases do come up, well then...you know." But isn't it a little bit fucked-up if a student needs to prove he's honest? I once read an essay from a pupil that was, yeah, too good for his age. I googled some sentences and huppah, there it was, almost exactly the same essay. I printed it and gave it to him, together with his zero. That's the way it should be, not the other way around.
I totally agree. I don't think the student should have to prove their honesty. But since the professor already accused OP of plagiarism then OP should dispute it. My girlfriend is a professor. She would never accuse a student without doing her own investigating. In which she's done the same thing, googled and found the essay word for word. Ending in the student receiving a zero.
Mabe ur prof expected u 2 rite lik this. Maybe I'm wrong about grammar still being important. Maybe all the anti-Grammar Nazis are right! *head asplode*
Say "you're mom was too good last night" in front of the whole class, and then walk out with intense swagger.
judging by the incorrect grammar displayed in this post (to), i'm not surprised your instructor assumed that.
Agree with above. If the professor pursues his accusal of plagiarism the student could get expelled, whether or not evidence is substantial. At least according to my university's policy. (Pending the advocation of the department chair, if a professor believes a student's work to be plagiarized based on published works, the work of a peer, or untestified quotations and proof, the accumulated credits shall be null and void.)
