Rules and Definitions
Do not use exclamations to show excitement.
Semicolons break up the flow.
Adverbs pave the road to hell.
Adjectives are too much tell.
Knowing this why do I defy
Because my inner voice is yelling...
punctuation for exclamation: a punctuation mark (!) used after an exclamation or interjection, and sometimes after a command
punctuation mark: a punctuation mark (;) used to separate parts of a sentence or list and indicate a pause longer than a comma but shorter than a period
modifier of verb or adjective: a word that modifies a verb, an adjective, another adverb, or a sentence, e.g. "happily," "very," or "frankly"
word describing noun: a word that describes or qualifies a noun or pronoun
Get out from under them
Resist, unlearn, defy
I wonder why anyone bothered to invent these parts of speech. Maybe so students would have more to diagram in English class.
Okay, I do know the reasoning behind not overusing these things. Just in a snarky mood. Still mad at my internet connection (4 more weeks. Crap.), and now Tropical Storm Bonnie is keeping me locked up in a small space with two bored 8 year olds. Eek.
