If we go by sound, what people are used to hearing & speaking will dominate the grammar world. "We is too going." "This is her." "I knowd y'all was absent." Where do we draw the line? When you study, learn, & practice proper grammar skills, certain sentences or phrases will suddenly sound incorrect to you that sounded correct to you at one time. For example, without even thinking about it, BrockawayBaby's second sentence, There is several examples..., sounded wrong the second I read it. lol Yes, some rules are more difficult than others, but let's not encourage ignorance just because we aren't 100% sure of something. It's not creativity vs. mechanics. It's creativity polished with mechanics. :)
