    Post Prescriptive Vs. Descriptive

    I need the broken rule, whether its prescriptive or descriptive and how do you know for each one of these sentences:

    1. Pokemon Go is like, so addicting

    2. How many did Josh throw Pokeballs?

    3. I went to the park has a lot of Pokestops.

    Re: Prescriptive Vs. Descriptive

    As there are errors, they could be said to be either- a descriptivist and a prescriptivist would agree on that.

    It might be, like, a bit late.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
