Grammar anomaly

Posted on August 25, 2017 at 9:27 AM
Another grammar anomaly seen and sent to me by a dear friend. The following appeared on a coffee mug; 

i before e
Except when your foreign neighbor Keith receives eight counterfeit beige sleighs from feisty caffeinated weightlifters. Weird.
Borrowed from WritingaboutWriting.com.

So I challenged myself to see how many random words I could come up with, using I before E, and use as many as I could in a sentence like the one above.

Upon review it is the belief of the Police Chief that a dark fierce fiend was what caused the courier to die, causing my friend to suffer much grief as she seeks some brief relief by viewing the field's sadly dried up crop yield she cried deeply.

I challenge you to do the same, but don't use google instead use a dictionary or thesaurus. I found 22 words and used 16.

Mostly people are afraid of the use of the language because of the tough grammar rules and weights. Every language in the literature has its own specific rules which are used in writing and learning. The grammar is the fun thing if you can fully aware with the rules.

I have rich experience in preparing animated videos, and I create promotional videos for my clients. Since, I have to be sure that there is no flaw in the script, so I usually hire the well trained writers from http://copycrafter.net/custom-writing.html to rewrite the script, and make it more interesting for the audiences.
