I think vocab and grammar are different fields. :P

No, I remember you corrected me saying click instead of clique under the subject of GRAMMAR NAZI! I then said vocab is different than Grammar, and you said vocab was a subset of grammar. Too bad this was in an oral conversation, since I do not have written evidence.

Re:

He didn't correct my clique and click in an oral conversation, that was on LJ(implied by the subject GRAMMAR NAZI!) My comment on vocab and grammar was in person.

I wouldn't be to picky Santa Monica, he'll get you again, your posts are always messy. I guess mine are worse though.

although I hate to be a purist....

...I regret to confirm that vocabulary, syntax, spelling, punctuation--all these are part of grammar. The all-inclusiveness of the subject made me weep copious tears daily when I was teaching it to high school juniors and seniors in Ohio and Pennsylvania. I fear they wept also. (The classroom floors were getting swampy.) For those of you who view this narrative as hyperbole or even (gasp!) melodrama, remember that one student's melodrama is often a teacher's tragedy. hehehe j/k
