Do you feel that the standard of grammar has dropped over the years among the younger generation? Something in me suspects that the introduction of SMS, Twitter and Internet lingo has contributed to this decline. You know the adage, when you want something done, you have got to do it yourself – and this is exactly what high school English teacher Jeff Scheur did, by programming a free Web app that creates grammar quizzes for students, and this app is also smart enough to keep track of one’s progress online. Known as NoRedInk, it will do its part to make sure that Grammar Nazis have nothing much to do, forcing them into an early retirement. Hopefully with NoRedInk (gotta, er, got to love the name), we will soon be able to see the younger generation appreciate the proper use of grammar, getting all of their syntax correct at the same time. It would be nice to receive a properly worded SMS, as deciphering a message in short form takes far longer than typing it out nice and proper.
