using two past tenses in a sentence is what i have noticed in most of the conversations as bad grammar....for e.g i didn't knew about that... Bad Grammar is rampant even amo…ng well read and articulate people. We English speakers are famous for it. Some of the most popular examples of current bad grammar are: Mistaken Pronouns, for example "between you and I (instead of me)," "If you have any questions see Mr Jones or myself (instead of me) and "There is is something for we (instead of us) Americans to do." Lack of Agreement in Number, for example "What we need are ( instead of is) more pots and pans." In that sentence the singular "what" is the subject, not the plural "pots and pans. " Also "Three people fell to their deaths ." No, people fall to their death. The Mushy Protasis in Conditions for example "If I would have ( instead of had) known you were coming I would have baked a cake," and the Sportcasterese "If he catches (instead of had caught) this the game is ( instead of would be) over." Excessive Use of Of, for example I didn't know it was that long of a walk. In writing, a big one is Unsure Possessives, for example We met in Charles' (instead of Charles's) office, or at the Jones' ( instead of the Joneses') picnic. Oddly, I suppose that the most common bad grammar of all, especially in America, is likely to be the expression "aren't I," an abominable Middle Class genteelism foisted on the language by ignorant snobs who shrank from saying "ain't I." Well, "ain't I" is familiar and colloquial English, normal in the Upper and Lower Classes in England. And "aren't I " is simply wrong, and no English at all. Yet almost everyone uses it regularly. The word "got" is the most overused grammatical error ever heard. I've got , you've got , we've got , etc., should be I have , you have , we have , etc. Blame it on "You've got mail."

A noun in English, and in any language, is a: . person . place . thing . idea. This is a very condensed definition of a noun, but it gives a basic overview. So, fo…r instance, 'Nebraska' and 'pencil' are both nouns. However, the group of nouns is further split into two groups - proper nouns and improper nouns. Proper nouns are people or places, and they all start with a capital letter (i.e. 'Bob', 'Susan', 'Melbourne'). Improper nouns are usually inanimate objects, such as 'eraser' and 'keyboard'. Anything noun that isn't proper is improper. Sometime the noun groups are called proper and common (improper) nouns . Also nouns are divided into: concrete and abstract nouns: house / dream countable and uncountable nouns: apple / rice singular and plural nouns: boy / boys and collective (group) nouns: flock of sheep / team of players

Incorrect grammar is so prevalent these days for several reasons. A) educational standards have been seriously compromised in this country to the point where grammar is no lon…ger being taught in some schools. Neither is script! It's disgraceful . B) The educators themselves are incapable of teaching grammar when they barely speak English themselves. To lower the required standards for ANY employment positions no matter what the reason is foolish! If testing standards need to be lowered to hire certain groups of people then - those people ( I don't care what color, religion, gender, or whatever) should not have those employment positions! C) Too much time in public schools is being wasted on trying to deal with children who do not even speak or read English as their first language! They speak very little English if any at all! No child regardless of his/her age should be permitted to take classes or enter the public school system without speaking English or completing an English as second language course! D) Today's technology has caused just about everyone to use made up text abbreviations or texting slang (LOL) as an entire new sub culture language! My pre-teen can text so face it would make your head spin . My daughter does write slow and her penmanship compared to others her age is much neater. I am very grateful that she does attend a school where grammar is taught daily, and she must write in script and wear a uniform. Of course it is costing me an arm and a leg to send her to private school! However, I can see difference between my child and so many others it truly is remarkable Grammar should be taught in every lower school everyday. How a person speaks and writes is imperative to their future and success in life ?

There is no way to tell exactly how many nouns are present in theEnglish language at any given time. Language is a living thing, newwords constantly come into use and fall out… of use. Some words areused only in specific places, other words are adopted from otherlanguages to become used in the English language. You will findthat dictionaries have a varying number of words listed in each ofthem; none of them are exactly the same. If someone were to attempt counting all of the nouns in the Englishlanguage, it would take many years to search all resources. In thattime, nouns would come and nouns would go. The count wouldconstantly fluctuate.
