"Hello Everyone, Our principle concern is our grandchildren. Do either of you have a pencil? Me and my husband never argue about sports. Who are you planning to vote for. The disagreement was between she and her opponent.You're a better dancer than me. Thanks David. If you plan on being in the Gulf Coast area, come and visit my wife and me. I have a MBA and an Ed.D from UWF." If you can't find the errors above, you probably need to sever yourself from the leisure grammar you're hearing and using: casual spoken (T-shirt) English; social networking language; Facebook grammar; and texting, blogging, and Twitter/tweeting language. And you probably have not applied the rule the Grammar Guru used for the semicolons in the preceding sentence in a long time. If you're a retiree or leisure learner or both, you are probably craving for some well-formed, correctly punctuated sentences with good grammar and spelling, right? In her Write @Vice for Leisure Learners workshop, Mamie Hixon is going to remind us how to switch gears from our smartphone and Facebook English to classroom and professional English; how to use print-based English with apostrophes, hyphens, commas, periods, and capital letters; and how to post and text using correctly punctuated sentences with good grammar - "real" good grammar.
