Chillicat, a quotation should be in double inverted (") commas, a non-quoted piece should be in single (') inverted commas.

 

Thus your sentence should read

 

" "Fun" is a noun, and therefore does not take the qualifier "very". Try 'great' or 'a lot of' instead." "

We would love to like you - we're (mostly) nice people. Start some nice threads.

 

Ok - will do.

 

how about the current road conditions in France's capital city - Paris?

Actually, the thread is not about a test, as suggested, instead it appears to be about a lesson.

If your such a perfectionist why has this been posted in Sheffield chat when it has nothing to do with Sheffield?

 

 

Should that not be "If <i>you're</i>..."

tut tut tut...... its time you stopped correcting people. :mad:

 

-looks down at you while you (04jessops) sulk in the pit of shame-

 

I think it's time for me to come out of my pit of shame now, and I will go about correcting your sentence:

 

tut tut tut...it's time you stopped correcting people.

 

 

(I am a bit cheeky!)

 

Go on, try and stop me this time! I'm on a mission to correct peoples' spelling and grammar, and I won't stop for anything (unless you kill me). :hihi:

Not content with having a go at smokers, now the poor spellers get the "04jessups" treatment. Is there room on your pedestal for a little one?

 

Aah - it's nice to be loved!

OK - this will not be well received!!! :rant::rant::rant:

 

I will now correct your sentence:

 

I see where you're (or you are) coming from.

 

04jessops at your service!!!

 

Why do I get the impression that English is not your first language?
