Hopefully my special day will come soon. I’ll get married on the beach and throw together an ill-fitting shirt/tie combo, my beautiful bride as bright as a peach. Oh, I can imagine it now. Everything will be perfect. And I won’t mind spending a fortune. Such a special day. Ooh, better get a photographer to capture all 7 of the amazing moments on that special day.
And maybe we’ve all got it wrong. It’s not meant to be vows, nor is it vowels. In some caribbean countries it is tradition to swap the two families’ favourite pet. It just so happens that they are both fans of small rodents ergo ‘exchanging voles’! I’ll get my coat.
What’s the relevance of “Unless of course you’re British?”
The question mark in the count’s comment is in the correct place regardless of one’s nationaility as the sentence is the question not the text in quotation marks. Not that it really matters to me. Honestly.
@ The count and Too Soon?
Uhm it is relevant, thank you very much.
In England, the question marl/period or whatever is placed outside the quotation marks.
In Canada, it is placed inside.
Therefore, it’s relevant.
@The Count I’m in school,idiot.
You on the other hand need to learn how to be less of an asshole.
This argument is pointless.
Have a lovely day.
1. You’re in school? Then get off the internet and concentrate.
2. So is it Britain or England? They are different. You’re obviously not a geography or history student.
3. The question mark was mine, the bit inside the quotation marks was not. The question mark belongs outside and any country that says otherwise needs to give up on English and stick to French.
4. I’m pefectly capable of not being an “asshole”, but I choose to be one on Lamebook. It’s hard to troll for ‘tards by being nice, but apparently very easy when you are an arsehole. That’s how we spell it down under, drongo.
3. When a question mark follows a quoted text, put it before the closing quotation mark if it applies just to the quoted text. Put the question mark outside the closing quotation mark if it applies to the entire sentence.
Do you think it would be better in this case to stick to the attitude of “what’s in it for me” ?
[entire sentence in question]
I really do not like her attitude of “what’s in it for me?”
[only quoted text is in question, no extra period after a question mark]
@ the count. Uhm. That was rude, Different countries & cultures have different rules and customs. It’s also known as Social Science -> anthropology.
Additionally, I do concentrate in school. I’m not there now, which means I can do whatever I please.
BTW, I realise the difference between Britain and England. Half of my family lives in England.
Therefore, I am familiar with the British slang and Aussie slang as well, Seeing as they are similar. So, I am quite aware that you say arsehole.
Clearly we do not in Canada.
Well thanks for the grammar lesson. I think.
@ the count,
You are a complete fucking idiot. I am in school, but there’s also a set time of the day when school is OVER, everyday.
Do you get it now?
Uhm, No, I don’t confuse them thank you very much, England is one country. Britian is all of them: Scotland, England & Wales.
& Additionally to you being an idiot, you must not have a life either, if this is what you do in your spare time.
Thanks! & I never claimed I was.
People make mistakes. get the fuck over it.
I followed the hole argument with interest and I gotta ask who u talking to Stella? the count said he wasn’t coming back but u are still talking to him. Hahaha, the count is right, u ARE a retard. The whole argumnet started with u pointing out someone elses error while making an error urself. the count called u on it so u accuse him of making an error, which he didn’t!!! You then hypocritically tell him “People make mistakes, get the fuck over it”!!! U seem like a precious little bitch to me as well as a retard. I think count decided not to come back because it is already so obvous to everyone that u are retard. Hahaha.
@Canuck, how about you shut the fuck up? kay thanks.
I’m not a retard, and using that word is offensive to people who are.
You’re a fine example of a human being, now aren’t you?
&& If you are Canadian, I’m really ashamed to be from the same country as you.
For you, clearly have no consideration for anyone.
Get over it and shut up.
It wasn’t even your argument.
&& Sorry I’m not some fat lazy 30 year old person who “trolls” and has nothing better to do with their time than bitch at other people, whom they do not know.
BTW, I was taught to put periods/ question marks inside the quotation marks.
Stella, honey, you’re trying really hard, and I get the whole Canadians do some things differently than the Brits, the Aussies, and, the Americans. But, they are all right. The ? goes outside in that particular sentence. Even in Canada.
Are you sure? I think regardless of what english speaking country you a from, in this case, the question mark sits OUTSIDE of the quotation marks. This is because, the question was the entire sentence, not just the two words he was quoting. People don’t ‘exchange vow?’, then again, people don’t ‘exchange vow’ either, but that was the point he was making.
