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.

Get a grammarnazi mug for your guy Rihanna.
A person who has mastered the art of speaking the English language. They are best known for going on social media and constantly correcting the incorrect usage of other users, and are almost universally hated by everyone. An occasional correction does not signify a Grammar Nazi, that title is earned after months of corrections.

KEEP IN MIND: Many people who are corrected by a Grammar Nazi really need the public shame because they've put too many poorly-written statuses on their social media accounts, and the Grammar Nazi should be hailed as a hero. If the person in question is clearly not a native English speaker, then the Grammar Nazi is the villain

Grammar Nazi: *They're
Guy: My mistake. Thank you.
