A World of Warcraft lesson in spelling and grammar

The following chat session was recorded in a World of Warcraft game.  A player asking for help gets a lesson in spelling and grammar.

 

[Perolex] whispers: can u run me thought a dungeon

To [Perolex]: You didn’t ask properly.

[Perolex] whispers: can u plz run me thought a dungeon

To [Perolex]: Six errors still.

[Perolex] whispers: what

[Perolex] whispers: a lvl like 70 dungeon so I can lvl up

[Perolex] whispers: anyone

To [Perolex]: Here, I’ll get you started.  “U” and “plz” are not words.

[Perolex] whispers: can you please run me tought a dungeon

[Perolex] whispers: thought

[Perolex] whispers: throught

To [Perolex]: There’s an extra letter on the end.

[Perolex] whispers: there is?

To [Perolex]: Mhm.  “Throught” isn’t a word either. :(

[Perolex] whispers: can you run me through a dungeon please?

[Perolex] whispers: please

To [Perolex]: Woo, we’re making progress! :) Still two errors though.

[Perolex] whispers: how

To [Perolex]: “Can” is not the correct word.  Yes, I can, meaning I have the ability.  But you seem to be asking if I WILL.

[Perolex] whispers: will you run me through a dungeon please?

To [Perolex]: So close.  Now let’s see that capital letter beginning our sentence.

[Perolex] whispers: Will u run me through a dungeon please

To [Perolex]: Ack, we gained two more errors!  “U” is not a word and we lost our punctuation at the end of our sentence!

[Perolex] whispers: Will you run me through a dungeon please.

To [Perolex]: Veeeery close.  We need different punctuation at the end though.  A period makes the sentence a statement.  You’re asking a question.  So what do we need?

[Perolex] whispers: Will you run me through a please?

To [Perolex]: Bless your heart for sticking with me… we’re missing a noun this time though.  Will I run you through a what, please?

[Perolex] whispers: Will you run me through a dungeon please?

To [Perolex]: Nope, that’s what the dungeon finder is for.  I hope you learned something about spelling and grammar though! :)

[Perolex] whispers: f u
