Mmmmm. Prudes with friction.
Maybe I'm just being stupid, but what is wrong with the first example (other than "teaching five years of" which is slightly awkward phrasing)?
4th base?! wow.
The first one's from a very interesting/useful b-school class (sarcasm) where we had to write a self-assessment memo about our communication skills/weaknesses. That was...meh. I liked the cartoon, you never cease to disappoint.
the author of piece #3 is almost certainly not a linguist, but any linguist will tell you that language cannot be taught, only acquired.if you have a "son, now here's how wh-questions are formed from imbedded clause" lecture story from your early childhood, please share it, right after you get done with therapy.
nothing's wrong with #1. Her use of "a good ear" from violin though usually means that she has a good ear for pitch, tone, and other musical related things, not that she's a good listener. Her next few sentences sort of explain her reasoning, but when you're one sentence in, I imagine the situation drawn.Ed apparently remembers more from his linguists courses than I do. That has to be what Author #3 meant: too bad the sentence structure didn't back it up. Or maybe Author's dad beat him everytime he used the subjunctive incorrectly and it's a commentary on how ineffective that was.

Ha, that's great. Looks like they own the entire blogpsot domain. So even http://xxxdirtyxxx.blogpsot.com will take you to a Bible site (complete with popups that DO NOT respond to your clicks like they should)
