Welcome to a new series (maybe), in which we explore some ways people are killing the written language.
1. Using the word “because” purposely without “of.”
“The world works. Because science.”
This is dumb. Replace with “Because of science.” Although that’s pretty dumb as well, but at least it’s grammatically correct.
2. The use of capitalized letters on fake proper nouns to “make some kind of point.”
This kind of shit is popping up everywhere. Like: “It was a Totally Big Deal, or at least he thought it was.”
Stop that. That is not a proper noun or a title. Only proper nouns and titles get capitalized. If you want to capitalize all nouns, schreibe auf Deutsch. Note: Capitalizing whole words is okay.
