interesting - why do we study grammar?

i admit that my writings here aren't always grammatically correct - but that's a style choice in that i've always written in stream of consciousness mode in my journals

on the other hand, almost anything else i write is meant to be read by others not as friends getting a peek at my private thoughts but as a story or documentation or a thought out paper and for those writings i'm a stickler for proper grammer

and in published writing - let's just say i can be a merciless bitch

so this post really makes sense to me (and i suspect a lot of you will concur) - understanding gives you more freedom not less
