Do you swoon over punctuation debates? Do you passionately defend the use of the Oxford comma? Are you constantly correcting people’s spelling and syntax (under your breath, of course, so as not to seem rude)? Then you, my friend, are a grammar nerd. Some people like to call themselves grammar nazis– but I think in this day and age, we should probably avoid that term if possible.
Nerds are knowledgeable and excited about the grammar conundrums they encounter every single day. Grammar nerds might feel a chill run down their spines when they see the “10 items or less” lane at the grocery store because they know it should read “10 items or fewer.” Grammar nerds know the difference between you’re and your and there/their/they’re. They don’t even have to think twice when they’re writing these words out. If you fall into this category, you will relate to these tweets.
