For all the Grammar Nazis out there. . .
Is "snuck" the past-tense of "sneak"?
Yes and no. Yes, it has become one of those words that has gained some legitimacy through repeated use. So, when the word is used in common American English, it communicates. No, it is non-standard English usage. The proper past-tense of "sneak" is "sneaked."
I have been on a one-man crusade to save the subjunctive mood from extinction. I'm losing.
Also, "hopefully" is an adverb not an adjective. "Hopefully, I will see the Pope" translates into the nonsensical sentence, "I will see full of hope the Pope." The original sentence communicates the idea that I hope I will get to see the Pope. Correctly written, this would be, "I am hopeful that I will see the Pope."
What's on your Grammar Nazi agenda?
Sieg Heil. Carry on.
