Caveat: The purpose of this series is neither to proclaim myself as a grammarian nor to despise people who are still unfamiliar with common grammar mistakes. It is to serve as a reminder that there are rules in English that refute those mistakes. I am well aware that I still have a lot to learn in English and I will not stop digging those rules to share them here. If you happen to be a guilty party, please remember that I shared these blog posts in the spirit of constructive criticism.

    I would like to ask why Filipinos always use “ma’am” or “sir” with a name such as “ma’am Alice” or sir Adrian”
    Isn’t that bad English?

      Generally speaking, Chantal, it is a way of showing respect for elders. It is bad English not to mention improper, I believe, when you are in the US or in other countries where such address is given a little regard.


  2. Are you working as an English Teacher in Saudi Arabia? 🙂 Just curious, bro.
    These are really interesting materials. Keep up the good work, Sonny!

      Hello, Adrian. I’m working as an errand boy here in Saudi.

      It’s a pleasure hearing from you.

      Thank you very much for the push!
