Does grammar matter?

I read this post a few days ago and found it extremely thought-provoking. Read it and think about it.

Im my opinion, grammar does matter. The question is, how much does it matter, and when?

This video, which is embedded in the post, is also very very interesting.

    Hi there, Carol!

    My opinion is that yes, grammar does matter. And what has to be taken into consideration is the writer/speaker and the audience. The main purpose of a speech or text is communication. So I just think it should be done the most correct way possible. We know not everyone deals well with the rules of languages, so some slips are bound to happen. And I think we have to forgive (and be forgiven for) them. What I dislike is when people whose job is to write (like journalists or writers) keep making the same mistakes over and over again. This really annoys me!

    Also, I don’t think people should be at either end of the spectrum. You don’t have to choose whether you are a pragmatist or a stickler (confess I had never seen this word before, but from the context I think I can gather what it means); you can be very well in between! There are so many colors available. Why see all in black and white? Do you agree?

    Great post. Nice text and video included. All the best.
