Grammar Slam: Here vs Hear

Welcome to CM Punk’s Grammar Slam, where wrestling superstar CM Punk corrects your awful grammar.

After an educational first season–which you can catch up on right here–we are excited to have our favorite fighter back on board for season two. In the debut episode, Punk tells us about something very important to hear: the differences between “here” and “hear.”

He illustrates these points by throwing the errors of his Twitter and email detractors right back in their grammatically incorrect faces. His first email of the season comes from Russ M., who either doesn’t know what hamburger meat looks like or should consult an ophthalmologist for an eye exam. Regardless, he also doesn’t seem to understand that “here” refers to a place, while “hear” refers to the perception of sound. A helpful tip, courtesy of Punk: “hear” has the word “ear” in it.

Let Grammar Slam be a lesson for the trolls: If you absolutely insist on throwing shade online, maybe you ought to steer clear of CM Punk. If you do have some trash talk that must be sent his way, make sure your grammar is on point or your imperfect prose might end up on a future episode of Grammar Slam.
