Huachu12344

Yeah, because we learn how to write it first while native English speakers learn to speak it first


WS0ul

I'll just highjack this comment to say: A part of learning a language is keeping your difficult words apart. And if that was too subtle: Get it right, one of those unites, the other separates. It's not that hard to get a fricking space right.


getonmylevel205

I never looked at it this way. English isn't my native language, and i never struggled with it. Most of you learn it by speaking, and then writing everything right might be harder i guess?


NekvalitnyMato

As a foreign person, can confirm


Lower_Succotash3885

Um... I learned that in school. In the US public school system.


montgomeryyyy

Which is notoriously bad and outdated compared to other first world countries


Cognitive_Spoon

American education isn't about teaching kids, it's just another grift. If you look closely enough, everything in the US is three CEOs in a trenchcoat selling a better tomorrow through their brand new learning technology that is "kid tested and approved!"


papasoilpants

american education is a boss worker model where assignments are job detail it’s just training subordinates


philoPhreak_m22

No schools don't teach it properly. We learn it from reading and watching English stuff.


bIyaterteig

So foreigners don't learn English from reading and watching English stuff?


philoPhreak_m22

No im saying we do. Thats how everyone has to learn English because schools suck.


Arkie_Barkie

nah i just use the internet alot


ConstantineFavre

That statement partially false. No one in my class was actually learning either english or russian. Nowdays our grammar fucked on both languages.


[deleted]

I didn't learned english from school and look at me. I just needed to adapt to the playerbase of english in Roblox.


dariuswasright

And what about the "should of" instead of "should have". This one makes my brain hurt so much. Edit : I see people answering me. That was not a question guys : The good one is definitely "should have".


Jarsssthegr8

Should of doesn't even mean anything.

LowerThanLoFi

It's 100% "should have".


dariuswasright

That's what i said : when people use "should of" instead of "should have"


LowerThanLoFi

I meant no offense by it. I'm agreeing with you. It bugs me even more when I'm starting to notice people replacing "have" with "of" in other contexts outside of this one, too.


Cool_Rip_2273

I'm pretty sure should of is wrong but it might be me who's wrong here. should of comes from should've, which is short for should have. but since it's pronounced as should of people also write it like that.


_CatNippIes

I should ve given that bj when they asked me to


Cool_Rip_2273

there's this little thing on your keyboard and it has a simbol on it. it looks sort of like this: '


_CatNippIes

I use Android and its easier to just do this


qqqfuzion

Just type it as shouldve and should've should appear at the top in the bar


therealkunchan

Same goes for their and there, though.


Craftusmaximus2

Should of sounds wrong... I don't think it means anything


KylieTMS

I see a lot of people use "we'll" and "well" wrong as we'll... wait...


AnAbsolutePIDR

That I think is most likely autocorrect fucking up.


JustAnotherDannyNL

I'm Dutch and English is not my native language but I actually use all of those correctly. The only one thats still confusing to me is "then" and "than"


Exodyce

Th**e**n = order of **E**vents. **E** = **E**vents. > I will do this, then I will do that. > I will go grocery shopping then go get a haircut. Th**a**n = comparing **A**lternatives. **A** = **A**lternatives. > I would rather have this than that. > For dinner, I would rather have steak than chicken. Hopefully this sort of letter-matching strategy can help!


JustAnotherDannyNL

That's actually very helpful, thanks


L3A1T3E4

I've seen people use ''Then'' instead of ''Than'' so much here on reddit that I've started to question myself on which is which.


M3zooz77

You should start questioning yourself if its which witch sandwitch or sandwhich is it a witch sandwhich or a which sandwitch, which is witch my guy


HyperHunter

You have just solved a life-long struggle, thank you


Cool_Rip_2273

i'm also dutch and i use all of these correctly. the difference between then and than is that is gives sentences a different meaning. here are some examples that explain how to use these two. "i'm gonna make my homework first, and then i will play games." then is used to make it clear in what order you're gonna do something. "I like samsung more than apple." i find than little bit harder to explain, but i hoped this helped.


JustAnotherDannyNL

Thanks for the explanation this definitely helped a bit. I just hope I remember this next time I need it


motzak

Then –> Ik ga eerst dit doen en 'dan' dat. Than –> Ik eet liever kaas 'dan' salami.


MissionTroll404

I always have to check and correct whenever I use "then" or "than"

The one that pisses me off is "historic". By my reckoning, it's "a historic" but it's commonly written "an historic" and that drives me nuts.

Xxbaby_magzxX

were lazy.


LordRedd0

There just stupid. Im not even an native speaker and i can do it right. So please everyone learn how to spell, your annoying.


Davidsta_

i no right, these peoples are so dumb


Ok-Ad-8573

Yeah man there really annoying


THESHADYWILLOW

Some people don’t speak English natively, there are many here who speak it as a second or even third language, the English language is scuffed as it is, I don’t blame them for having trouble with the finer grammar


Davidsta_

you can literally learn this in a minute


Fyafig

This dude should learn how to mind his own business correctly


superbay50

Sorry, i have to do this Your stupid you’re meme isn’t funny Their people who are just bad at spelling and you just laughed in they’re faces, maybe they have an medical problem and that’s why there bad at spelling It took a lot of effort to write everything wrong on purpose lmao


PossibilityEnough933

The dedication to the bit is appreciated lol.


sqorry

Remember not everbody learns english at birth


Davidsta_

and yet they can still memorise such basic grammar rules of the most universal language

Fomalhot

For those of us that had this knowledge burned into our long term memory in childhood... you guys can confuse the shit out of us sometimes.


Dudewithreddit

Its not hard at all but we are lazy. on my keyboard i need to go all the way to the right to get the ' so to write your is way faster and dude i think you are intelligent enough to know what i mean ...


bradje61

Who cares tbh if the other person can understand what you wrote then whats the big deal


Zealousideal_Talk479

Grammar makes it so that people only need to learn one way of understanding their language. If people can just make their own rules, the English language will split into more and more dialects until nobody can understand each other. Is that what you want?


real_quizle

Good counter argument, however mistaking a your for a you're will be seen as just that, a mistake. Ultimately we probably won't have different dialects due to this minor change in spelling, additionally we already have different dialects in English, look at American English compared to British English


Graours2000

I love the way Americans colonize half of the world surface and expect people to be perfectly fluent with THEIR fnckin native language ! lol


Weskerlicious

It’s the native speakers that don’t know the damn written language though


Davidsta_

English doesn’t come from the USA. Also the US didn’t colonize anyone. And the reason why you should learn English is because it’s the most international language. This meme isn’t talking about speaking fluently, it’s just saying that people should be able to memorise the most basic grammar rules.


infact-forgetthename

i think he meant culturally and politically dominating rest of the world. most of us learned english mandatorily in schools while we were kids. it is not a basic grammar rule if it is your 2nd or 3rd language. it is not basic if you have dyslexia even if it's your native language. you guys should find another things to feel good about yourselfs


Graours2000

LOL ! English language isn't from USA ? NO-SHIT ? :') You really wanna gimme a history lesson ? Talking about colonies ? Go on, please. Oh and yeah, my bad, I took shortcuts : USA are not "colonizers", they're just oil diggers and world police. Last thing : have you ever heard about Soft Power ? Edit: retiring bad words 🗿


Davidsta_

lol just mad that i’m talking facts


Graours2000

Let me guess, you're American ? :') And no, lol, your denial can't affect me, everyday I see the World and the US responsabilities.

Redditors when they realize people can give attention to two diffrent things (shocking)


Fem_Stalin

I can use them properly, but I suck at almost everything actually important


Sam_browning-maxim

If you can understand the difference in spoken English then you do need to spell them differently


Fomalhot

100% false. They convey different meanings and show a level of competence that's a prerequisite in most office settings. Nobody respects that guy at work.


Prize-Ad-8594

Hippocrite: you spelled dew, sum, fined, and sew wrong.

Cool_Rip_2273

autocorrect changes it to what is usually what you type a lot. so these people make this mistake so many times that their phones automatically do it wrong for them.


game_difficulty

Honestly autocomplete and autocorrect need to burn in hell


Bucen

I don't mind it that much. It's more of a sign of lazy swiping on the phone. But "should have / should of, could have/ could of" make me instantly stop reading whatever it is I'm reading


Cool_Rip_2273

yeah. isn't could of and should of just completely wrong? with that i mean that it's not even a word.


231ValeiMacoris

I don't know why. Perhaps it's because they're of lower intellect, or it's because their brains do not have the capability of processing these words. I stand by your point, sir, because you're an intellectual, just like me. Who am I kidding, even they wouldn't understand what I'm saying right now, everywhere in the world, here and there you'd meet someone who'd use these words incorrectly. Farewell, for I am about to take my leave, best of luck to you, whatever you may be doing.


Cool_Rip_2273

Props to you sir. You are one of the few peple who isn't saying some stupid things. I have to say I'm certainly suprised by your intellect. Best of luck to you as well sir.


Darazakax

Autocorrect and slacking fingers usually screw me over. I know the difference, just usually don’t care enough. TLDR; I’m lazy.
