It's correct, it's just a very contemporary phrase that sounds retarded. I mean 'Loving' is a valid verb.

How is "I'm loving it" not proper?


Unless you mean " lovin' " as opposed to " loving ".
#10
No, it's fine english.
It's short for 'I am loving it', which is fine.

For example...
"How are you finding your new job?"
"I am loving it"

The only way I would say it's improper is because "it" does not have an antecedant. The only way you can use it without an antecedent is if you're talking about the weather. As in, "it's raining".

There is no antecedent in the thread starter's sentence. The 'it' is just contextualised in relation to the subject matter.

Well no, "i'm lovin it" is incorrect English.

It should be "I'm lovin' it", in that case. The "I'm" should be capitalised and there should be an apostrophe at the end of "lovin'", to show that the "g" has been dropped.

Yes, but he didn't spell it incorrectly as 'Lovin', he spelt it correctly as 'Loving'. McDonald's add the abbreviating apostrophe on the adverts, so what are you referring to? Also, capitalising the 'I' in 'I'm' wasn't really important in relation to his question.

I was referring to the title of this thread, "i'm lovin it".

And it may not be in relation to his question at all, but the 'I' in 'I'm' should always be capitalised
