Signs that you are a grammar Nazi.

English might be a funny language, but not everybody goes along with the fun part. 

There are three types of people speaking English- one who speaks English, the other who speaks English “correctly” and the third kind has to be the most annoying one- the Grammar police. It seems like some are born to rectify people from framing incorrect sentences. Grammar Nazis are a personality that grows in you- either knowingly or unknowingly. They develop a habit to give a judgmental look upon others’ language skills, even if it is a rooky mistake. Also, they refuse to use SMS lingos for communication.

So, we have listed a few signs which prove that you are a Grammar Nazi.

You act as an official proofreader for your circle of friends. Before your friends post anything online, send an official email or send a long text in English, they come to you for rescue. Sometimes it becomes tough to proofread everything we right, but Grammar police do not miss any chance to rectify the mistake. In all, it is good to have Grammar Nazis in the group so that others get saved from the embarrassment.

You do not take assistance from SMS lingos to communicate via text messaging. Even if you need to write long paragraphs, you do not feel it right to use messages like “Hw r u guyzzzz?”-This isn’t your vibe. Using BRB, TTYL, or OOTD might be considerable, but you prefer easily understandable language.

You cannot stand even the rooky grammar mistakes made by others. You plan for ways to strangle the person using phrases like “most tallest”, “did not got”, and others. Sometimes it becomes difficult to stop yourself from correcting these kinds of mistakes. However, it might be a rooky mistake that happened inflow. Therefore, try staying calm.

Your mind is a 24*7 grammar dictionary that keeps on processing everything you get to see or hear. When correcting the typos in a book, restaurant menus, or online posts becomes your daily deal, you are an official Grammar Police. After a certain point of time, it becomes a habit that overpowers your sense of taking control of ignoring grammar mistakes.

Your favourite pastimes are playing word games, reading English novels and improving spoken English. Be it a Grammar Nazi or ordinary people, improving language is a good habit. One must take a time-out and focus on learning new words every day.

If you have the following qualities, you got qualified as a Grammar Nazi.
