By: Mary Win May

A word crime is the mistakes we use today. Here are some word crimes:

- writing words as numbers

- using letters for words

- not spelling words correctly

- not using apostrophies in contractions

There are much more.

Word crimes are in this world because people are so lazy. When someone is typing a text message they will use letters for words like the letter u instead of you, or r for are. Word crimes started when people were able to text. We can fix this problem by not being so lazy all the time. We need to be able use correct punctuation, correct grammar, and when you are getting interviewed for a job. You have to show that you  are not lazy, and that you can be capable of using correct grammar. Last never use whom instead of who or the other way around.See you next time. Remember this always.
