You obviously never had Mrs. Hall for English and had to diagra mm sentences with implied subjects- lol!


QUOTE=Swedish Extrovert;3873280]Honestly my pet peeve these days is the phasing out of verb contractions in American English.

"Feeling' good."
"Loving the Broncos season this year."
"Hard to go 13-3 with a below average football team."

^None of these are sentences.

"I'm feeling good."
"I'm loving this Broncos season."
"It's hard to go 13-3 with a below average football team."
Or even better "A below average football team wouldn't go 13-3."

^These are real sentences.
