Chalk another one up for us grammar nerds. Listen to what "Loss for Words" has to say in the "Ask Amy" column in today's Journal Gazette:
Dear Amy: I am dating a very, very nice man. We get along fabulously and have for the past year. There's just one problem--his language skills...So watch those verb tenses, ye single folk. Poor language skills are a total turnoff.
For example, he consistently uses the wrong verb tenses in speech and incorrect words such as "hisself" instead of "himself."
I'm in my early 30s and reluctant to reject a good, kind man because of this seemingly small thing, but it is an increasing concern for me...
