Internet Grammar Pet Peeve of the Day

When you extend a word for dramatic effect, make sure it's phonetically similar to the original word. For example, if you wanted to say "nice" with enthusiasm, you would type:


You would not type:


In the first instance, it would still be pronounced "nice." In the second instance, it would be pronounced "nicy" (rhymes with "icy"), thereby creating a new word that would make no sense if you said it out loud.

I hope you all appreciate this advice and apply it to your everyday lives.
