    1. Sige icorrect natin haha Ito na lang—- He spilt something …. and “told” me . Yun ang mali.

      Delete
    2. 1:15 right? Consistency of tenses. Lol

      Delete
    3. Sana wag na yung puro pangongorrect ang takeaways lol. But since you started it - Actually tama naman ✔️ 1:15 “he proceeded (to mop it by himself and) tell me”

      Delete
    4. 115: nope. tama ang sentence construction ni kylie. ikaw din ba si 1136 sa baba? πŸ˜‚

      Delete
    5. 1:15 tell can still be correct. I know it sounded off since she was using words in past tense after “and” but it can also be interpreted as how her child PROCEEDED TO mop and PROCEEDED TO tell her, it‘s accepted. When writing, it always sounds better if words aren’t repeated. If she used it in different phrases or if there was a comma after the word himself, then it would be wrong. —Journ major

    6. Proceeded to mop and tell

      Delete
    7. 1:15 dyan din ako na bother hahaha mali yung cinorrect

      Delete
    8. isa ka pa--to MOP it and TELL me pareho ng tense. nakisali ka pa kasi

      Delete
    9. 1:15 magccorrect ka nalang mali pa. Proceeded to mop and "tell".

      Delete
    10. Basag! 🀣 feeling. Phil grammar ang Alam 🀣

      Delete
    11. 115am, exactly! πŸ˜†

      Delete
    12. Agree 1:15.
      Pet peeve ko ang grammatical errors pero di kasi ako bida bida na nagcocorrect unless directly itanong sa ken kung tama ba o mali ang grammar nya.

      Delete
    13. 1:15 yup yun ang mali

      Delete
    14. 1:15, he PROCEEDED to mop it and tell me..

      Delete
    15. 1:15 Youre wrong. “Proceeded to mop and tell” kasi ang simple form nyan. Kaloka anghilig talaga mang korek ng mga tao kahit sila ang totoong mali

      Delete
    16. 1:15 I think dahil "and proceeded to" ang sabi nya ok ang "tell". Parang di naman pwede "and proceeded to TOLD me"

      Delete
    17. nakakatawa kayo .. useless and argument

      Delete
    18. Yung anak ni kylie mukhang mabait ah. Ganyan ang bata may kusa.

      Delete
    19. Shuta naman 1:15, please!! hahahaha tropa mo yung nag comment sa post ni Kylie. lol

      Delete
    20. I think verb tense consistency yung sinasabi ni 1:15 na mali. Dapat "told" yun.

      Delete
    21. 1:15 history repeats itself! facepalm

      Delete
    22. pag may "TO", base form ng verb ang kasunod kaya "to mop", di ba?
      Bakit yung "tell" wala namang "to" pero base form? Kasi kasunod sya ng "and" so it works like "to mop and to tell". No need to repeat the "to". Therefore walang mali sa "proceeded TO MOP and TELL me". However, wala ding mali if "proceeded to mop and TOLD me" kasi pwede din namang "PROCEEDED ____ and TOLD ___ " which is consistent na nasa past tense ang verb. haaay, people are so unforgiving. imbes na intindihin muna, sugod talaga agad. RUDE!!! Mas importante pa talaga for them to make other people feel bad about themselves kaysa sa pagvalue ng manners nila. Disgusting!

      Delete
    23. 5:05 diba? Totally agree with you.
      Kadiri yung mga nag cocorrect ng grammar pero sila naman ang mali or hindi alam ang rules. Ang ffeeling. Mali naman sila.

      Delete
    24. Tama po yung "he proceeded to mop and tell me not to walk there. pero ang sinabi po kasi is “He spilt something and proceeded to mop it by himself and he tell me not to walk there kasi madulas. It’s the little things" Hindi po ba out of place yung sentence na "he" doon? Kaya po siguro sinasabi nila na dapat "told" kasi may he before nde sya directly to mop and tell. Kasi kung base po sa ganong argument, "proceeded to mop and (to) tell me" nde naman pwdeng "proceeded to mop and (to) he tell me" dpo ba?

      Delete
    25. 12:42 anghaba ng sinabi mo, mali naman basa mo. wala naman “he” before “tell me”

      Delete
    26. tawang tawa ako sa sagutan dito. lahat ng kumokontra sa sinabi ni kylie, kayo ang mali. makinig kayo sa mga titas of grammar! wag nang umapela pa at tama naman yung nasa post.

      Delete
    27. TELLS .. he TELLS me kasi dapat.
      fixated kayo sa TELL e mali din kasi singular yung HE

      Delete
    28. 12:42 MALI!

      “he split something and proceeded to mop it by himself and TELLS me not to walk there kasi madulas” ang tama.

      1:07 kahit walang “he” sa sentence when you break the sentence up dapat gramatically correct pa din. “he tells me” is correct , “he tell me” is not

    4. There is right coz she’s pertaining to British English dictionary.

      Delete
    5. isa pa tong fake grammar na*i.

      THERE is most commonly used to mean “at that point” or “in that place”.

      VS THEIR which is the possessive form of the third-person plural pronoun “they", it means “belonging to them.”

      educate yourself ante 1136, nakakahiya. πŸ’…

    6. Mag cocorrect ka na lang mali kapa

      "And there, spilt is a word"

    7. Isa Ka pa. Tama yung there. Kulang lang ng comma.
      I grew up in Australia…… and there, spilt is a word.

      Ikaw siguro yung basher.
      Aral muna kasi.

    8. Pasok din un there , referring to that spilt is a word in Australia. Ikaw ba un basher na nagcomment?

    9. Luh, acceptable naman ang "there" niya kung ang ibig nyang sabihin is literal na doon/dun.

    10. Nag cocorrect ka nyan 11:36? Anong grade ka na? 🀣
      "there" kasi talaga yon, neng.
      In tagalog "doon (sa Australia), ang 'spilt' ay salita".

    14. Baks naman, bago mo sana kinorek yung word, inintindi mo yung sentence! I GREW UP IN AUSTRALIA AND THERE (AUSTRALIA) SPILT IS A WORD.

      And FYI, hindi lang sa Australia ang word na spilt. SPILT IS A WORD PERIOD. It's past tense/past participle of SPILL. American English- SPILLED; British English- SPILT.

      Delete
    15. haha nag correct e ikaw yung mali

      Delete
    16. Tama naman si kylie. But if talagang panindigan nyo pagka grammar nazi nyo, may comma after there...ito o: and there, spilt is a word (meaning, dun sa Australia).

      dyosko, ang pe-perfect ng mga pinoy pero number basher at racist sa kapwa.

    17. Tama yun. Kailangan lang ng comma pero dyosko maliit na bagay.

    13. There as in doon sa Australia. Luh

    14. 11:42, It's you who doesn't know the difference between "their" and "there". Ikaw mag aral teh.

    17. 4:38 isa ka pa. balik ka school. anong "their spilt is a word"?? did she ever mention Australians? She said she grew up in Australia. Australia (there) vs Australians (their) sana ma gets mo. plus the word spilt is a verb so the use of their wont make sense

      Delete
    18. 12:07, proven na talaga yan. May results ng test na napublish a few years back and kahit sa social media na lang, makikita mo talaga kung gaano kahina ang mga Pinoy. Ang masaklap mahina na nga sa comprehension, kulang pa sa common sense, hirap pang turuan.

  9. Yes there is a word spilt when i was reading it i knew it looks correct. grew up and nagaral sa pinas and in school we knew what spilt is. Anyway point is if a certain word looks unfamiliar to you, google is free πŸ˜€

  10. To the commenter with limited vocabulary: Spilt is a word.
    Kakahiya, di manlang nag google bago mag comment. Sa totoo lang, maraming ganyan dito sa Pinas. Porket di familiar, tagged as mali kagad. Mga tipong sanay sa ‘trash can’, pero pag sinabi mong rubbish bin , lost na kagad sila tsk tsk.

    3. Pinoys are known for being grammar police... so annoying

    4. 12:53, “baddest” kasi is a slang word, hindi ginagamit sa proper English. I don’t know in what context Will used the word pero magkaiba ang meaning ng “baddest” sa “worst”. It could be na tama din yung basher na dapat “worst” ang ginamit na word.

    2. 2:51 todo tanggol sa idol nila but waley rin in general ang sentence nya. Walang comma, period… hirap intindihin. Well you can but it’s hard on the eyes… besides it should be “we follow” not “we followed.”

    1. Yes, pero tameme pag job interviews. I'm mostly rooting for our kababayan pero di kaya i-push. Kahit anggaling ng experience, hindi confident sa interviews maybe dahil naka-focus sa grammar kaysa sa substance ng sagot. Why? Takot ma-grammar nazi pero as hiring manager, ang importante sa amin is your conviction. Kung di ka confident sa sarili mo, how can we trust you?

  25. Here we go again when English is the subject. We are perfectionist on the grammar and even the slightest mistake that people make, we ridicule them right away. I think the reason we do this is our enormous love for America. We want them to see that we are like native speakers in the US.

      I have been working with a lot of them for the longest time and I have yet to come across a C-level executive whose email is full of grammatical errors and misspelled words. Even mid-level managers have a very good grasp of grammar. THEIR emails are always concise and the vocabulary on point.

    5. 9:11 Ay girl kala mo ba sila mag-aadjust sa nonnative speakers na know it all sa grammar? NO!!! I worked in the call center industry for 15 years at walang lugar ang pagiging 100% grammatically correct. The important thing is to communicate effectively which means naintindihan ng kausap mo yung paliwanag mo.

    6. 4:17 Hindi naman kasi lahat call center ang industry. Madaming industry ang kailangang magaling ka sa grammar like journalism. Bottomline is wag ipilit kung mali talaga.

      Delete
    7. This is 9:11 and I agree with 9:35. I’ve lived in the US, UK and Singapore and work in IT. Grammar & spelling are very important in written communication (especially when creating design/technical documents) because you have to say exactly what you mean. Maybe it doesn’t apply to casual conversations but it does to office communication. I don’t know any manager who doesn’t ‘ give a f***’ if your memo or technical paper has grammatical errors. It reflects on your performance review.

      Delete
    8. 4:17, yes they have to give a ‘f***’ when it is written and work-related. I have corrected Americans & Brits on their grammar during reviews of their technical documents, whether as part of a team or if they worked for me. Why? The purpose of grammar is to ensure clarity and accuracy.
      It is different from when you are just having a conversation on the phone.

    1. tama ang gamit ng 'tell' kasi before it sinabi niya 'proceeded to' which referred to the actions 'mop' and 'tell' - alangan namang sabihin niya na 'proceeded to mop it by himself and TOLD me not to walk there'????!?! think of it na 'proceeded to mop...' and 'proceeded to tell me...' pero to simplify inisa lang niya yun 'proceeded to'

    2. Apakaperfect mo naman. Sige ikaw na!

      Delete
    3. Di rin teh. See the word AND preceding tell? One way to test is remove the words 'mop and’. Di ba magiging …’and proceeded to tell me’, which means consistent ang structure ng subject-verb agreement.

      Delete
    4. But in that situation, do you think it really matters to correct the grammar? Ito yung hindi ko maintindihan sa mga taong kagaya mo at ng commenter ni Kylie. Naintindihan niyo naman yung ibig niyang sabihin and yet you still want to call her out. Para ano, maipamuka sa kanyang maganda nga siya at mayaman pero wrong grammar naman? Unless nasa business situation yan or nasa school, itama niyo. Pero kung simpleng post sa social media, anong point? Tell, told. Minor mistake lang yan na even native speakers would brush off. CONTEXT kasi ang importante.

      Delete
    5. Napansin ko din yan. Haha. Mali pa yung napuna, halata tuloy limited ang vocabulary.

      Delete
    6. 11:52 Wala namang mali kung mag-correct ng grammar. Lahat naman ng mali dapat tinatama especially kung may rule. Mahirap nang makasanayan yan. At least, may natutunan. Let's not normalize yung "puwede na yan" kahit obvious na mali.

      Delete
    7. 11:52 Well then, get ready for a future generation that is bad at writing, spelling, at walang wide vocabulary. Hirap na hirap na nga makabuo ng short essay tong current generation kung walang internet. I can only shake my head at the atrocious grammar and spelling errors I've had to correct when teens ask me for help with their assignments.

      Delete
    8. 2:49 Jusko yan ang pinoproblema mo napakasimpleng grammar error! Ang tanong, kaya mo bang makipag converse sa native speaker smoothly and effectively? May "at least natutunanan" ka pang pinagsasabi. Kung nakapagtrabaho kana sa ibang bansa at nakipag-usap na talaga sa native speaker, lalamunin mo yang sinabi mo. Pramis!

  47. Ang may grammatical error lang naman ay yung commenter, dapat "to your story", not "on your story".

  48. Si grammar nazi naman. Hindi napansin yung ginawa ng bata which is commendable given his age...Sya nga pasalitain ng straight, no grammatically wrong English sentences...siguro ganun kagaling. Look at the bright side. Sometimes puede ng palagpasin small errors.

  51. Maiiba kasi ang meaning.

    K's reply: we followed British English dictionary and there spilt is a word.
    Tagalog: sinunod namin ang British English dictionary at doon natapon ay isang salita.


    K: we followed British English dictionary and there, spilt is a word.
    Tagalog: sinunod namin ang British English dictionary at doon, natapon ay isang salita.

    If K used "their"
    K: we followed British English dictionary and THEIR spilt is a word.
    Tagalog: sinunod namin ang British English dictionary at ang kanilang natapon ay isang salita.

    1. 8:29 No luh. I also have 24 hours a day just like you; I just know how to manage my time. It took me 2 minutes typing my comment. I'm touch-typist. Mabagal pa nga di ba?

    1. I'm ok with correcting the grammar kasi you can learn from it. Pero make sure tama yung pag-correct or else kahiya-hiya ka.

  54. Daming nagsasabing di mga racist, pero grammar nazi sa social media. May time magcomment sa post ng iba at icriticize ito without looking at the dictionary or google. It's just seconds to check before sending your comment.
    When you're talking to a foreigner, di naman nila kini-criticize ang grammar ng kausap nila. As long as you understand each other, ok na yun. Kahit pa nga mali pronunciation mo, they dont care din. Lalo na if they know that English is not your language. Bakit ko naconnect ang pagiging racist? It's the same thing. You are not an American, so ok lang na di ka magaling mag-english. Is that a crime? No. But criticizing a person bec he/she can't speak fluent english or using wrong grammar when it's not your mother tongue, it's basically being a racist..

    1. 6:32 Kung sa Philippines ka magwowork, you need to improve your grammar lalo executive or sa established multinational company mo gustong mag-work. If you are confident that you will get hired in another country even if your grammar sucks, then live up with that standard. Hindi naman talaga crime ang hindi magaling mag-english but hope you realize the consequence of that career wise here in the PH.

  55. Not quite related sa maling pag call out pero kung ayaw niyong ma-correct yung grammar niyo, study English more. Hindi yung magagalit kayo sa grammar nazi kasi tamad or ayaw niyong mag-aral. Ang daming resources online. Wag puro maritess lang.

  58. I live, work and study in England. One of the earliest realizations I had when I first got here is that there is a huge difference in spelling and nuances between British and American English. Australian English also has it's own nuances and colloquialisms too. So many Pinoys are such know-it-alls. Even in England, the English have differences in the way they use the language. People from Cornwall for instance find it difficult to converse with people from Northumbria because of these differences as well as dialects and they all are supposed to be English and they are all counties in England so please Pinoys, be aware of correcting others. Your grammatical knowledge is limited to what you learn from school and what you use in Philippine society - an adaptation, Taglish. The formal English you use is also limited as you still need to translate your thoughts to English before you write it down or speak it as most Pinoys, including myself, still think in Filipino; it is how we make meaning in our minds. It is neither good nor bad, it is just how linguistics work. It is not our lingua franca.

  60. Kylie is correct. I remember the time sa University when I did my Masters here in Australa. When I submitted my thesis or literature review our professor will say to follow Australian/British language. Kase dito yung Organize, organise. Yung "Z" nagiging "S". Kaya porke hindi tama sa American english na alam nyo eh mali na. Ayan naboljak ka tuloy 🀭

  61. Sa pinoy lang naman big deal ang grammar. Been living here in Australia at mas madami silang grammatical error even with legal documentation and they don’t give a sh about it.

    1. 10:50 Kung andito ka sa Pilipinas at dito ka nagtatrabaho, big deal talaga. Kapag college grad ka at nag-apply ka ng white collar job dito at pa-mali-mali ang grammar mo, hindi ka madaling makakakuha ng work.

  62. Yan ang problema natin.. Karamihan sa'tin nagmamarunong. Sa social media lang, parang lahat kung magsalita sila ang tama.

  65. TAMA si kylie. mali ang mga nag-correct. hindi pwedeng told yon. tell is correct. spilt is correct. tumahimik kayo lol

    1. 7:20 manahimik ka din! tama pareho whether she used told me or tell me. Told me is for tense consistency related to the action verb proceeded while "tell me" is related with "to mop" since she used "and."

  66. Correct grammar is very crucial for better communication. Kapag mali ang grammar mo, iba ang intindi ng kausap mo.
    Ex. Sa party, some pa-cool guys invite you for a dance.
    Guy 1: May I dance on you?
    Guy 2. May I dance in you?
    Guy 3: May I dance over you?
    Guy 4: May I dance with you?

  67. Sige, i-normalize natin yung mali-maling grammar tutal sabi nung iba sa ibang bansa naman they don't give a d*mn with it.

    Hayaan natin yung iba sa maling usage nila ng your and you're / their and there.
    Your welcome. You're son is amazing. Their it goes. I got there package their.

    We'll gonna go to the mall. My friend passed away the corridor.

    Even sa Filipino, madami ang hindi alam gamitin ang NG at NANG.

    1. Pedantry achieves nothing. The meaning of the post was completely lost on the commentator because he/she was too focused on finding errors. That person most likely has nothing else to add to the world.

  68. Grammar nazis are nothing more than unaccomplished people DESPERATELY trying to make themselves look more intelligent.
