WE learn about the subject of a sentence from the predicate:
The old ruler of the small kingdom decided to abdicate.
For the subjunctive mood, we write or say “If I had ...”
I am sure that ten million ringgit would make me glad!
Let us put this to the vote:
“Thank you note” or “thank-you note”?
“Going to” is used to reflect the future tense:
They are all going to stop sitting on the fence.
“Harrass” is a very common misspelling.
Remove one “r” to get the correct spelling.
The grammar champion of the college remained unbeaten
When she said, “The past participle of eat is eaten.”
The boy opened his book to take a peep,
And answered, “The plural of sheep is sheep.”
The student did not put an X against “none of the above”,
For she knew that another term for puppy love is calf love.
The atmosphere at the annual spelling bee of the school was electric:
One contestant added k, e and d to form the past tense of panic.
Be a better writer –
Make your writing tighter.
