I hate the people that do not use whom, plus the ones that mix up there their and they're (or even write thier...). If you know other languages besides english whom makes sense, and often (sometimes less though) sounds weird when it is not used.

But I guess that is how it goes with language, we have a word that like 95% if not 99% of the people use incorrectly. To me it sounds cringe worthy but to most people it sounds normal already. (It is enige and enigste, where the first means only one but people use the 2nd word which means something more like the most lovely one. Both words are connected to the meaning unique. It is like saying onliest child, just wrong but people dont hear it anymore)

"You" should be acceptable for 2nd person plural since that is what is used in English today. Same for you/you/your/yours/yourself in the 2nd line. The archaic words above them have been phased out and now the words in parentheses represent correct usage. Typing in "you" when you know that it is the correct answer for 2nd person plural and having nothing come up is a bit confusing and frustrating. Maybe you could create a separate line for archaic forms. If you are addressing a group of people that does not include yourself you would refer to them as "you" or "y'all". "Y'all," though thought of as crude and improper, was actually acceptable not that long ago. More recently than "ye," I think.

You do get points for typing "you", "your", "yours", and "yourself", since they appear in the 2nd person plural row. (If you type "yourself", I quietly give you credit for the "yourselves" cell.) But I feel that it's fun to give additional points for the archaic forms.

It is fun to have the archaic forms included, but that does not mean you should be considered incorrect for 2nd person nominative. That is just odd. Regardless if you get points for 2nd person obj. for typing you. Which doesn't necessarily make me happy. I would rather like to get points for the one I am filling in at that moment. (I wouldn't be opposed to a yellow box).

Please keep the archaic forms and but accept the correct forms for the 2nd person

What about "yous" or "yous guys" in New Jersey and "y'all" in the southern states? In know it's regional, and not proper grammar. I live in New Jersey, but grew up in New Hampshire. As an outsider I've noticed that many people, especially from the older generation (over 60), often say "yous" for the 2nd person plural. Like, when asking my wife and I where we went, my father-in-law might ask, "Where'd yous go?"; but, he wouldn't use "yous" if just asking about where I went.

In the UK, yous is considered bad grammar used by poorly educated people. It's used in Ireland and by a lot of people in Liverpool (because of the Irish influence).

Why? It's clearer than an unqualified "you".

I can't believe no one cringed at the hypercorrection of "asking my wife and I". The table of correct usage is right up there.

They're still found in a lot of songs: e.g., "O come, all ye faithful", "By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes", and "Off we go into the wild blue yonder".

I think it has more than enough time, and I am not a native english speaker. I had a minute left to figure out what they were looking for for the 2nd person plural ( didnt come up with it though) after getting all the others.

I got all but "ye" I spend nearly a minute thinking what that could be. Not bad for someone whose native language is not english though :)

I had no idea what obj refl was though, had most of the rest filled in and that one stayed blank for a long while. Thankfully I got a start when I thought, "how else can I refer to myself" once I got that one the rest of the row was easy.

Can't believe I beat 97,8% of the people that took this quiz! :) (or that the average is actually quite low, would have expected it to be above 40 atleast, atm it is at 31..)

Btw I love that this quiz has a table !! It helps with staying focussed ( plus of course you see where you still miss things, but that is not the main reason for me, it feels more organised, so the chaos in my brain gets less in the way and less change to be distracted) yay categories ;)

Please do more quizes with tables :) (and maps with certains quizes are nice too, for the non geogrpahy ones, like I dont know if you could see on the map which countries have elephants, or where they drink the most coffee per capita)
