I believe in good grammar
Posted February 13, 2010on:
I wrote a bit back about my pet driving peeves. And while these tend to make my blood boil, there’s one other thing that really, really, bugs me.
I am a grammar queen.
“Could have”, people, not “could of”. Hell, I’ll even accept “could’ve”.
Know the difference between their, there, and there they’re.
OMG, my blood pressure.
Which brings me to my issue with CTV’s Olympic Song: “I believe”
It bugs me. Okay, so I’m a bit of a metalhead, but that’s not the reason the song bugs me. It bugs me because it’s gramatically incorrect, all for the sake of a rhyme:
I believe in the power that comes
From a world brought together as one
I believe together we’ll fly
I believe in the power of you and I
It’s you and me. You wouldn’t say “I believe in the power of I” would you?
And this bad grammar is being broadcast all across Canada and around the world.
