    Capitalizing Pokemon names?

    It's hard to backtrack on yourself when I can just go to previous posts in the thread and pull up what you were saying before: So, yeah. That *was* your argument. If it isn't anymore, good, she can be taught. I responded to your pronunciation example. My response was, "How something is...

    Capitalizing Pokemon names?

    What you're saying is almost complete nonsense, but I haven't done this in a while, so I'm going to bite. Another example of this is "moot," ie, the name of the guy who runs 4chan. It's certainly interesting, and up for debate. Personally, if I were talking about him formally-- in an essay...

    Capitalizing Pokemon names?

    I've got to hand it to you, this is a position in this argument I've never heard before. A word is any linguistic unit (including its spoken and written forms) consisting of one or more morphemes that functions as a carrier of meaning. If your point here is that "pikachu" is not a word-- it...

    Capitalizing Pokemon names?

    There are a few underlying problems here. The first one is that people, in general (hi there, MHugs), don't know enough about linguistics and English grammar, never mind how new words are introduced into language. As someone who has been through English Ed. training programs, I blame the...

    Names: What should I call them?

    There are tons of name archives on the web, and no one is going to scroll through an insanely long and incomplete list of names when it's so incredibly easy for anyone with half a brain to just go to babynames.com or something and search for the one that fits their qualifications. This brings...

    2009 Fanfiction Awards?

    A) I am not dead, sorry. B) If the consensus here is "the format we've been using has been working smoothly" and the only complaints are along the lines of people being in denial about a popularity contest, are there any objections to getting the ball rolling a bit?

    Describing emotion

    A good place to start is developing an understanding of how emotion works physically (yes, this might require research). Oftentimes, the best way to communicate emotion is by describing the physical manifestations on it without saying it at all because innately we all know what certain symptoms...

    2009 Fanfiction Awards?

    Since the nomination deadline makes the most sense, I think.

    Clipping

    I actually finished the second part in a timely manner, which is cool. ---- 3 Jenny looked around, anxious. The bus stop was empty except for two monks, and this made her nervous. She looked down the road a bit, at people dribbling in and out of the Violet City Pokemon Center. It was early...

    2009 Fanfiction Awards?

    Hm? Would you need my help then, Dragonfree?

    Type of fiction you like to write/read

    I thought the same thing, but for some reason decided to leave it as a subcategory. I can't even remember why now, because you're right. xD I'll edit it. Hmm, Action I'm not convinced about because I feel like it will always have conventions of another genre with it, if that makes sense. Also...

    Type of fiction you like to write/read

    I'm going to have to agree with the above poster, here. This wasn't thought out very well... and Jeebus, the word you're looking for is "genre." "Fictions" is not a word. As for what are considered basic genres, you've made some really weird choices. "Past" is not a genre. Neither is "normal."...

    2009 Fanfiction Awards?

    Whatever you'd prefer, Dragonfree! (I have over a month 'til my classes start back up, so I have way too much free time and wouldn't have any issues doing it alone, if you'd rather.)

    2009 Fanfiction Awards?

    I for one would be absolutely thrilled to see awards happen again. I'd also be oddly willing to orchestrate it, or to help.
