    an elitist who gets off on correcting others' grammar and spelling because it makes him feel superior.

    grammar nazis often misidentify grammar as the primary determinant of one's intelligence and the most important element of expression.

    this belief stems from the grammar nazi's insecurity, which leads him to learn the simplest thing in the whole fucking world to learn and impose it on others, earning self-gratification in the process. realizing how easy but effective it is, the nazi continues this ego masturbation until he can no longer separate the truth from the lie: grammar's not that important, no one gives a shit, and no one likes you.

    grammar nazis don't realize that in actuality, grammar is too ambiguous to have a rigid standard, and that though basic grammar is necessary, most grammar rules are not, and can restrict good expression.
    Shakespeare: What a piece of work is man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty!

    grammar nazi: Speak in complete sentences.

    Shakespeare: the ability to communicate both colorfully and effectively is way more admirable then perfect grammar so stop sucking Webster's dick, you grammar nazi.

          There's a difference between being a 'grammar nazi' about simple things like capitalization and slightly misspelled words, and being a 'grammar nazi' about sentences written so horrendously they make you pause and re-read them just to understand what the person is talking about (*cough* most of Tommy's posts *cough*). In the latter case, yes, it usually (but not always) is a reflection on the person's intelligence.
