Would you tolerate poor grammar?
Recently, Cheryl Conner, a contributor at Forbes, wrote the article, “I Don’t Tolerate Poor Grammar.” In the piece, Conner outlines how poor grammar and writing have become common among the millennial-age work force and how some companies are beginning to crack down on these problems in the work place. Initially, the author was concerned that the “epidemic” of poor writing was a new inevitability, but—in learning about Grammarly—found some hope for the future of grammar.
Do you or would you tolerate poor grammar in the workplace and under which circumstances? Is poor grammar inevitable in today’s world?
POLL: What is the “scariest” writing issue that you see in professional emails?
All of us know that business emails should be professional, meaning they should be free of basic spelling, punctuation, and grammar errors. Often, however, business emails are filled with errors. For better or worse, those errors make the writer seem not only unprofessional, but often also unqualified.
