Note: In any situation where a punctuation mark is in order, write out the name, not just the symbol.
I forget to bring my coat yesterday!
The speaker is referring to 'yesterday', which makes all verbs past tense.
If your cold, I can get you a blanket.
'You're' is the correct word to use, because it means 'you are'.
Sally and me went to the store.
If 'Sally' is removed the sentence is 'Me went to the store', which is incorrect. 'I' is the correct word to use.
Look out, it's claws are sharp.
'It's' means 'it is', so using 'its' makes the sentence correct.
If you loose, you have to buy me a soda.
'Loose' is a word meaning 'not tight', and 'lose' is the opposite of winning, and in this situation 'lose' is correct.
I can't believe how wierd this quiz is.
'Weird' defies the common 'I before E except after C' rule, and must be spelled correctly.
There getting away on their boat!
'There', meaning a place is not the word used to describe 'they are', which 'they're' does mean.
Weather or not you want to, you're going.
'Weather' defines how it is outside. 'Whether' is the correct usage of the word in this situation.
There's alot of problems with this sentence.
'Alot' is simply not a word. There is a space between the 'a' and the 'l'. Also, there ARE a lot of problems. Not there IS a lot of problems.
If you are correct, you recieve a free cookie!
I comes before E EXCEPT after C. And sorry, I'm out of cookies.
I would of won the game if I hadn't lost.
'Of' does not fit there! The word 'of' has other things to do than be put in sentences incorrectly!
Effervescence is a annoying word to spell.
When the next word starts with a vowel, the 'a' turns to 'an'. Magic!
I'm not eating nothing today.
This is an example of two negatives, which makes a positive. If you don't eat nothing, you eat something. Get it?
How many cookies does you have?
'Does' is the wrong tense for this sentence.
I have a present, but for who?
Who is now the indirect object, making whom the correct choice for the sentence!
He does good when he plays that game.
An adverb is in order here, not an adjective!
He's a real good-looking guy; you'll see.
'Real' means true, genuine, and is NOT a substitute for the word 'really'.
The car needs washed.
It's either 'washing' or 'to be washed'. 'The car needs washed'? Seriously?
Oh my, I must lay down.
'Lay' has to do with chickens, not with people.
The penicillin will immediately take affect.
'Affect' and 'Effect' rhyme, but they are different words.
Veronica stealthily meandered around the patience in a state of analgesia.
'Patients'! The people!
BONUS; There is a grammatical error in this clue!
Yes! Yes! Semicolons should NOT be used in this situation! Colons should!
It's quite embarassing to misspell 'questionnaire'.
There are TWO 'r's, okay? Spelling it the other way makes the 'r' feel sad.
Psicology is a difficult topic to study.
It's also a difficult word to spell.
