    Van Halen fans, especially here on the Links, are obviously an intelligent cross section of the cultural map...However, a problem, dare I say, an EVIL, exists among us...Please forgive me for this post, as I am a teacher to the bone...I see this grammatical and spelling error constantly...I crusade against it every day...

    Dear friends and fellow Halenheads...

    "ALOT" is not a word...used to mean 'many' or 'several' it just isn't a word...Please trust me and accept this post in the intended spirit of making all Halenheads, the world over, not only the most loyal, but the most literate fans on this or any other planet...

    Peace!!!

    I like Van Halen alot. That's incorrect?

    I try to spell everything correctly to the point where I'll consult www.dictionary.com to check things I'm not sure of, but I'm sure I still make a number of mistakes.

    So in the spirit of this free (I hope) lesson, here's a couple problems I have;

    1. Is it "definately" or "definitely"? I go back and forth on that one.

    2. What is the correct use of the ' in this sentence?; "One mans' Peter Criss is another mans' Ace Frehley".

    Thanks teach.

    Glenn,
    Pull up a chair friend...

    1. definitely...root word being definite

    2. man's because you are using the possessive.."One man's Peter Criss..." The impression of Criss belongs to the one forming the impression...hence the possessive...

    Now, go to recess and don't tease the girls!!!*L*

    Okay, so what kind of apples are we supposed to leave on your desk?

    Feel free to crack my knuckles with the ruler if you ever see me spell definitely wrong again.

    I ain't gots to much problems when peoples uses bad grammer and spelling alot.

    The only thing that pisses me off is when people say "me and my friend" or "me and my wife".....its "MY FRIEND AND I" dammit.
    people make that mistake alot.

    What does this have to do with "evil" though?

    Because if illiterate to any degree is EVIL, then a whole lot of Republicans owe me a big apology for defending a certain illiterate whose name just happens to add up to 666.
