This 5 Minute Grammar Lesson is another example of speech interfering with writing. It sounds like we say suppose to when we speak because we don’t enunciate every letter in all our words.\
But…in writing… it’s not ok to leave the D off the end. I was supposed to go to bed early. I was supposed to clean my house today. I was supposed to turn off the lights when I left the room. I was supposed to have done five loads of laundry. I suppose, I was supposed to have had only one glass of wine with dinner. But I was thinking of all the things I was supposed to have done today, and needed a second glass of wine.
It’s never SUPPOSE TO in writing, always SUPPOSED TO.
And that’s the 5 Minute Grammar lesson! Bloggers – you are supposed to check your posts for this mistake! And have a great weekend. 🙂
