    Let me help you with your RPing!!!

    I hope this thread will be really helpful. The purpose of this thread is to provide a place where people can discuss and ask for help with any aspect of their language. This is in order for you to become better and more creative RPers, as a good grasp of language is key to making a good RPG or competing succesfully in any of the competitions. In this thread you may discuss-

    - Spelling: any spellings that you would like to verify or perhaps discuss differences in spellings of different countries. Lists of different spellings of words can also be submitted so it will be clear which are acceptable.

    - Grammar: this is one that I particularly see people struggling with. Any questions on correct grammar can be submitted here, in order to make your sentences and paragraphs easier to read and more acceptable to judges.

    - Punctuation: not to be overlooked. Enquire within about the correct use of symbols and punctuation.

    - Creativity: a lot of people have been asking me how they can use language to make their RPs flow and also make them much more interesting to a reader. This can be discussed here. Also meanings of decorative and sensationalized words can be submitted and discussed, as these add flavour to your writing.

    - Flow: let's help things flow better in general!!!

    Any questions can also be PMd to myself if you wish to, I don't mind that. But I do hope people will make use of this thread to avoid the same question being asked several times, that way people can just look up the answer here.

    Lol I think it's fine that way, but I'll do that if it makes it easier to read ;)

    Also I hope people who don't speak English as their first language will find this helpful.

    Don't get your is and es mixed up. I've seen somebody spell chief as "cheif" and it annoyed me greatly ¬_¬

    As my teacher told me before, there is always a "lie" in "believe".

    That might help those who spell "believe" wrong.

    "i" before "e" except after "c"

    Yup, with a few pointless exceptions, as you always get with the English language :SWEAT:

    SOLILIQUY- (plural soliloquies)

    1. (drama) The act of a character speaking to himself so as to reveal his thoughts to the audience
    At the end of the second act the main villain gave a soliloquy detailing his plans to attack the protagonist.

    2. A speech or written discourse in this form.
