I am having some trouble with prescriptive and descriptive rules. I have to decide whether the following sentences are prescriptive or descriptive.

1.) I will talked to you tomorrow about our plans this weekend.

2.) Joe and her love to watch Spartan football every Saturday.

Help please!

  3. I don't think any native English speaker would use the first sentence. Are you sure you copied it correctly?

    The second is probably a descriptive sentence.
