Donald Trump: English Patient
If nothing else, Donald Trump's tweets provide good examples of common errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
From Common Errors in English: This confusion can easily be avoided if you pronounce the word intended aloud. If it has a voiced Z sound, then it’s “lose.” If it has a hissy S sound, then it’s “loose.” Here are examples of correct usage: “He tends to lose his keys.” “She lets her dog run loose.” Note that when “lose” turns into “losing” it loses its “E.”
National Review is a failing publication that has lost it's way. It's circulation is way down w its influence being at an all time low. Sad!
It's is the contract for it is. Its is the possessive of it.
Ted Cruz is totally unelectable, if he even gets to run (born in Canada). Will loose big to Hillary. Polls show I beat Hillary easily! WIN!
Wow, just saw an ad - Cruz is lying on so many levels. There is nobody more against ObamaCare than me, will repeal & replace. He lies!
