Why McD said “I’m lovin’it”?

Thursday, September 26th 2019

    Because advertisers, musicians, poets, and creative people do whatever they want, and that’s a good thing. It makes our world more interesting. However, if you want to appear for an exam, or speak and write correctly for work, then you need to use the correct form! All the best to you, Astri.

Hello, Rebecca. I hope you are fine. Could you make a lesson explaining how to use Onward, Onwards, Forward, and Forwards? I want to know the difference between the above, and I didn’t find any lesson on YouTube. Thank you!

Thursday, September 26th 2019

I like and appreciate your lessons.

Another brilliant lesson by my best and favorite Teacher ever! Very grateful to your existance since I’m pretty sure you’ve contributed tremendously in the field of education with such great lessons and ways of teaching! Not only do you help English students but also Teachers. Couldn’t thank you more. Best regards from your biggest bolivian fan!

Thursday, September 26th 2019

    Wow, thank you so much for your kind and generous words. Based on your writing, I would say you could certainly become an excellent English teacher. I wish you all the best, my friend.

    Wednesday, November 6th 2019

P.S.: Unable to download or print the file :/ same happened to your previous lesson on “How to pronounce the ‘ON’ sound in English”. Please, fix it!

Thank you, teacher…!!

Hi Astri! The expert Mignon Fogarty said:

“I’m loving it” does sound slightly off, and that draws attention. Perhaps that’s why McDonald’s chose it for their slogan, which launched in September 2003. None of the dictionaries I checked sanction “loving” as a form of the verb “love,” but the McDonald’s slogan isn’t the only instance where this sentence has been used in popular culture. Justin Timberlake has a 2003 song called “I’m Loving It”, and earlier the Scorpions put out a song called “Still Loving You”, which contains the lyric “I’m loving you.” …
We all know that advertisements, song lyrics, and fashion headlines aren’t the places to turn for examples of good grammar, but we also know that native speakers of English can get creative with traditional grammar, and that sometimes grammatically iffy phrases catch on. Language is constantly changing. Enough people seem to be using stative verbs in progressive tenses that we can probably say it’s becoming more accepted in popular culture to use them that way. That said, it’s still probably best for ESL* teachers to continue to advise their students not to say, “I’m loving it” or to use other potentially incorrect stative verbs in progressive tenses.

Thursday, September 26th 2019

    Thanks, andixi! I was about to link to the same piece.

    This StackExchange user also points out that using “loving” and not “love” implies that it’s an ongoing activity—it’s something the speaker is doing right now. It sounds more immediate and dynamic than just “I love it”. The people at McDonald’s definitely took this into account.

    Friday, September 27th 2019

Thank you Rebecca. I love your lessons!!!

Thursday, September 26th 2019

This lesson is really wonderful! Thanks a lot.
Can you please make a lesson on confusing spelling ..whether ieve or eive..such as believe and perceive. How to memorise correct spelling.

    Friday, September 27th 2019

Thank you!

Friday, September 27th 2019

Hello, Rebecca! Could you please explain if the verb “want” belongs to the category “both”. I haven’t found it in your additional material, but I suppose this word is normally used as a stative verb. However, I’ve seen the usage of this verb in continuous form. Could you elaborate on that, please?

Friday, September 27th 2019

    The verb “Wait”. Not want.

    Friday, September 27th 2019

      The verb “wait” can be used with the progressive tenses.
      I am waiting.
      I was waiting.
      I will be waiting.
      I have been waiting.
      ….and so on.

      You can also say:
      Every day, I wait for the bus.

      All the best to you, Anton91.

      Wednesday, November 6th 2019

So if I say:” I’m still loving you”, as the famous Scorpion’s song, is it not correct?

Saturday, September 28th 2019
