I have to get something off my chest. This is not flex or flash or even development related. It deals with grammar and the English language.
The other day, I was listening to a radio program about finance and local Boston news. One of the radio hosts, who claims to be a writer for the Boston Globe, said something like, “me and her saw this…..”. I generally don’t expect much from the media or radio talk show host. But I do expect that a person who gets paid to speak and/or write, AND has an outlet to reach thousands, if not millions would have the discipline to speak properly.
So the grammar lesson for the day is the proper use of personal and object pronouns. To correct the radio host, you would not say, “me and her”, you would say “she and I”. I went to the store, not me went to the store. She went to bed, not her went to bed.
Ok. So now I have probably opened myself up to a great deal of personal attacks on my own use of proper/improper grammar by writing this post. Hey, at least I try.
More grammar lessons to come.
