A Hill You Are Willing To Die On

This thread made me laugh. And nod my head in agreement.

  1. I’m not on Twitter so I will leave my hill here:

    i.e. does not mean “for example”, it means “that is”.
    “For example” is abbreviated as e.g.

  2. I’m confuse, for me hill is a ” a natural elevation of the earth’s surface, smaller than a mountain. ”
    Where can I look up the meaning you are understanding in this question.

  3. Countable vs uncountable nouns, e.g. “number of people” not “amount of people”.

    Also people who spell “led” as “lead” (Angrily starts frothing at the mouth.)

  4. You’re = You are (the apostrophe takes place of the A in are). “You’re a great person. You’re welcome.”

    Your = Belonging to “Your dog. Your life. It will break your heart.”

    It’s not hard people!!

  5. Oh my gosh, yes. Loved this thread. My hill is farmers market. No apostrophe! Anywhere!
    As explained by Grammer Girl, “The market is used by the farmers, populated by the farmers, but generally not owned by the farmers. So it seems reasonable to conclude that you don’t use an apostrophe because the word farmers is there to identify the type of market. It’s acting like an adjective.”
