Re: Ending a sentence with a preposition

That's pretty much anyone that's read anything I've written.

So I'm not great with grammar or punctuation. I don't like that stuff anyway. I just like cooking animals and my family.

Brb, have to help my uncle Jack off a horse 😕

Re: Ending a sentence with a preposition

LMFAO over here! I knew from you I could on a HILARIOUS response count!

I have to go throw the horse over the fence some hay. Then I have to throw Mamma from the train a kiss. (That was a movie btw.)

Re: Ending a sentence with a preposition

Actually, in the phrase "Fuck off," which Niles is referencing, "off" is used an adverb, not a preposition. It modifies the verb "fuck" and has no direct object to which it connects. "Fuck off" is its own phrasal verb.

A preposition connects one noun to another noun via a verb. "The book fell off the table." Off what? The table. Off is a preposition here.

Niles is wrong!

I taught English 101 in grad school for credits if that counts.

Re: Ending a sentence with a preposition

Wow another wrong one!

Notice that there's two seemingly prepositions here: "off" and "in."

I think he said "that guy off in whose camper they were whacking."

It's impossible to say this sentence correctly without ending in an off or in. That's because the "off" in "whacking off" acts as an adverb. It modifies the verb "whacking."

The correct way to say this (at least his version) without ending in a preposition is: "You know that guy in whose camper they were whacking off?"

Thanks, Professor! That's ironic. That's what one of my closest friends calls me.
I call her Young Grasshopper.

Re: Ending a sentence with a preposition

You don't understand about WHAT this thread is talking.

You said the equivalent of: I don't understand which this thread is talking about. Really?

Re: Ending a sentence with a preposition

Yes I realised that at the time but didn't care enough to change it.

Re: Ending a sentence with a preposition

I have used the phrase "up with which I will not put" and I didn't know Churchill said it. Geniuses think alike.
