Dictionary 150x150 1

(Un)Grammatically Speaking

One of the less-heralded parental duties is (gently) correcting your kid’s bad grammar — or trying to.
Witness this exchange between me and my (then) 8 year-old daughter:

She: “Did you know that Raffy (family dog) digged a big hole in the garden?”
Me: “It’s “dug,” not “dig.”
She (with emphasis): “Did you know that Raffy dugged a big hole in the garden?”

Third time the charm??
