There's this large source of confusion among learners and sometimes even native speakers. They tend to think if something doesn't sound right to their ears, it must be ungrammatical, while that's at times not the case.

Often we hear things like hey, dude, "I know it ." is ungrammatical because there's a space before period and it shouldn't be there. or "Don't eat cold water" is ungrammatical. How can you not know that?! while both of these are perfectly grammatical utterances, but err in some other ways. This post is to clear that up, by explaining why not every error in language usage isn'tis a grammatical one.

WhyIn what ways don't each of these utterances get it right?

B: I love playing tennis!

I don't understand what's wrong with this sentence,

In how many ways can something not be right?
