Yes. Other than that, there is no excuse to botch the English language. Learn and use it properly, or don't use it at all.

Linking to this because it contains gratuitous swearing, but it is the best grammar rant *ever*

The British are always complaining about American neologisms. Apparently we make new words with a fervor the Old World finds overwhelming. I guess gerunding is an extension of our ease with quick language evolution :)

That is very true. Pretty soon all our nouns will be used as verbs, if they haven't already. I remember, when I was on a backpacking trip once, a member of my group began to use the suffix, "age" at the end of any word that he coud. For example, the word, "boiling" was turned into "boilage". Soon, the whole group, myself included, began to use the "age" suffix every chance we could as a form of amusement. It became a game of sorts to see what words we could use "age" on. It helped to keep things interesting at the very least.

Oh, Babystarz, that is just a howl. I almost wet
myself. Now I can send it to the guy who sent
me all those cartoons....and this:

Exhaustipated

Here is a new word to add to your vocabulary.

It will be especially useful to us senior folks!

Exhaustipated
:

Just too tired to give a sh
it.

Funny, yes. But what is the grammatical fault in this statement?
