Quote curtish: When I hear the actors using incorrect grammar, I wonder if they know they are making mistakes, or do they just say it the way the writers wrote it, regardless if they know there are errors or not.
I know some actors are college graduates, so wouldn't they know about the very obvious mistakes made by the writers?
I guess my question is this: why doesn't someone----editor, director, writer, actor notice the error/and fix the problem?
Maybe they want it to seem more like real life. I know a lot of people in real life that don't use the correct grammar at times. ;)
What bugs me is hearing the word PROTECT pronounced PRE-TECT. It's everywhere in news and commercials. And saying come-ene instead of com-ing gets my goat, also saying loosing instead of losing, that happens alot. I'm the one who corrects spelling on the notices posted at work. If my boss hadn't posted this notice: Pitchers Is For Residents Only instead of Pitchers ARE For Residents Only, I'd rip those notices down and redo them but the boss would know exactly who did it, lol! If I hear a mistake in grammar whether it's on the news, radio, even a tv show, it's glaring to me and I think it should be corrected.
