2005-06-02 [Veltzeh]: Actually I've read that singular words ending with s should get the whole 's ending and the apostrophe only would be reserved for plurals ending in s... where I read it from said that it's okay to use either. Personally I like to do "Travis's" because, well, it's more logical. ;)
2005-06-02 [Veltzeh]: And, if you said "Frank's and Gina's dogs", that would imply they both have a dog or dogs of their own, I guess that could be added there.
2005-06-02 [Mister Saint]: Actually, I think you're right about that first one. This is what I get for typing this up when my brain is already in bed asleep. ^_^
2005-06-02 [Mister Saint]: Thanks!
2005-06-02 [Veltzeh]: Fixed ummm... typos. XD Here comes another thing... about when to include the punctuation mark inside the quotes. Now, in a case like this, I really would say placing the period inside the quote is wrong: Some people are "dim". I mean, the period has nothing to do with the word dim there. >_> Another thing is that in Finnish at least it's correct to write "I don't know", ey said. If one were to put the comma inside the quotes, it would be wrong. I guess this is only a difference between languages, though. Personally I always put the comma outside even when I'm typing in English, though I probably shouldn't... XD
2005-06-02 [Mister Saint]: Well, I'm told that in Europe, even when writing English, its correct to put the punctuation mark on the outside, and in the Americas its correct to put it on the inside. Why you ask? I have no freaking idea. Some jackass just decided that the language ought to be made a little more complex.
2005-06-02 [Veltzeh]: Still more, while I edited the page, I noticed that you (or someone) put two spaces after a period. That's not only wrong, it also doesn't work. ;) Here it will actually create a non-breaking space which prevents the word from going to the next line.
2005-06-02 [Veltzeh]: I'd thought I'd mention... I nitpick effectively, heh.
2005-06-02 [Mister Saint]: Be gentle, Veltzeh. This is not that critical of a thing, this wiki. Change what you think is wrong, I don't care, just so long as you're not wrong.
2005-06-02 [Veltzeh]: Well, that's the thing, I'm often not that sure of myself either... X)
2005-06-02 [Mister Saint]: I'm sure that somebody, somewhere, knows all the answers. And whoever it is, I wish she (got to be a woman, we men are too pragmatic to bother with all the answers) would get down here and shed some light on the situation. Hm... I'll tell you what. The reference I've been using is Strunk's "The Elements of Style", which is available online at http://www.bar
2005-06-02 [Veltzeh]: Lol. Sure, I guess that link would be good.
2005-06-02 [Mister Saint]: Cool. I'll post it on the main grammar thingy page. (Whoo, big words!)
2005-06-02 [Mister Saint]: Thanks for helping out with this, by the way. ^_^
2005-06-02 [Veltzeh]: :D I just like grammar. And spelling. X)
2006-06-08 [iippo]: :/ If there's differences with American and European/Briti
2006-06-08 [Mister Saint]: If you'd like to take care of it, iippo, feel free. ^^ I only catered to American rules because I'm unfamiliar with the European rules. ^^
2006-06-09 [iippo]: And I'm unfamiliar with all the rules, which is why I was asking how it is correct in the UK. :/
2006-06-09 [Veltzeh]: Even I don't know how it is... I could of course glare at the books I have in English but it's not like they were consistent. >_>
2010-12-10 [Annie]: Just updated the keywords on the page.
