Grammar Court by Michael Kesten, OTLA Communications Director
All rise! The Court of Grammar and Proper Usage is now in session! Repeated offenses against the English language and numerous grammar citations have made it necessary to call this Court into session. Offenders, too numerous to name, include authors and writers of Trial Lawyer magazine articles, CLE syllabus materials, and all other means of written communications for public or organization dissemination. First up, the confusing case of That v. Which . These two words are often seen used interchangeably, with little regard for role or assignment. Common law, as interpreted by The Gregg Reference Manual , says which is always used to introduce nonessential clauses, and that is used to introduce essential clauses. Example: The doctor's report on soft tissue injuries, which I sent you last week, should be of some help. Which introduces a nonessential clause. The doctor's report that explains soft tissue injuries should be of some help. That introduces an essential clause and helps define the meaning of a sentence. In other words, if you can read the sentence without the clause, use

A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun. Pronouns can be in one of three cases: Subject, Object, or Possessive. Subject pronouns are used when the pronoun is the subject of the sentence. You can remember subject pronouns easily by filling in the blank subject space for a simple sentence. Example: did the job. I, you, he, she, it, we, and they all fit into the blank and are, therefore, subject pronouns. Subject pronouns are also used if they rename the subject. They will follow to be verbs such as is, are, was, were, am, and will be. Examples: It is he. This is she speaking. It is we who are responsible for the decision to downsize. Object pronouns are used everywhere else (direct object, indirect object, object of the preposition). Object pronouns are me, you, him, her, it, us, and them. Example: Jean talked to him. To be able to choose pronouns correctly, you must learn to identify clauses. A clause is a group of words containing a verb and subject. A strong clause can stand on its own. Example: She is hungry.

Clear English

In 1919, William Strunk Jr privately printed a little book which, when revised by E. B. White 38 years later, was to become The Elements of Style , a classic text on grammar and usage. English in the 1990s is a very much different language from that of the 1940s. Now widely regarded as universal language of business and commerce, English (and its elegant usage) is constantly gaining in importance in the world today. This is a comprehensive and easy-to-use guide to the finer complexities of English usage. The book is for everyone who already has a command of the conventions of basic English, but who wants to acquire finer precision in expression and clarity in writing.

The need for students to learn to manage the different levels of correct discourse. Is there help available now in the Creative Workshop?
Not at the present time. This area is tied to grammar, so it will not be dealt with until the new grammar is in place. Are there any grammar-based products in the Learning Orbit Store?
Not at present. Please send us your comments and suggestions by our new light-speed e-mail form. Broken Infinitives For centuries we have been told not to split our infinitives. Now, it seems, our general disregard of that ban has toppled it from power. The Oxford English Dictionary has recently lifted this prohibition. Henceforth, we are permitted to legally split as many infinitives as we like.
(Takes all the fun out of it, doesn't it?)
Of course, not everyone is happy about this change. "I never dine with those who split infinitives," says Professor Samuel Pickering of the University of Connecticut.

Category VI - Grammar/Usage/Mechanics
This category is last on the Rubric which indicates that editing should be the last part of the writing process. "Grammar" and "usage" refer to the conventions of edited American English that relate to parts of speech in both writing and speaking. The use of verbs and their auxiliary forms, noun and pronoun forms, and adjective and adverb forms should conform, under most circumstances, to the accepted conventions. While it may be appropriate for someone to say "It don't make no difference" in a college dialogue, it usually would not be appropriate in the expository prose written for composition classes. Mechanics indicates the conventions of spelling, punctuation, quotation, and capitalization of edited American English which are expected by most members of an educated American audience. Word omission or repetition and errors in manuscript form are also listed in this category. Because differences of opinion about the various conventions are inevitable, the will serve as the grammar/usage/mechanics guide.

Ask the Grammar Goddess
Who, Whom, What-ever!
Susan Rooks From the volume of e-mail I received this past month, it appears that the quiz in last month’s column was a hit. So, when in doubt, repeat success! This month we’re continuing our look at pronouns and focusing on who and whom . These two words are troublesome for many, especially in speech. The good thing is that in speech, we’re held to a slightly lower standard of accuracy and excellence; it’s sometimes tough to come up with the correct form when our mouths and minds are moving so quickly. Most experts recommend using who in speech because it just sounds better! And whom, which may be correct, can sound pretentious even when used correctly. In writing, however, we don’t get off that lightly. Writing is, by its very nature, a slower process, giving us time to think about words, usage, and forms. Making an error in writing also allows a discerning reader to return again and again to the mistake, possibly getting more and more upset.

Intros: Contents A B C D E F G Bottom ... Top of this page "A" or "an" "A" is used before words beginning with consonants; "an", before words beginning with vowels. This is determined by sound, not spelling ("a history", "an hour", "a unit", "a European", "a one"). Formerly, "an" was usual before unaccented syllables beginning with "h" ("an historian", "an hotel"); these are "now obsolescent" in British English (Collins English Dictionary), although "an historian" is retained in more dialects than "an hotel". Before abbreviations, the choice of "a"/"an" depends on how the abbreviation is pronounced: "a NATO spokesman" (because "NATO" is pronounced /'neItoU/ or "nay-toh") "an NBC spokesman" (because "NBC" is pronounced /Enbi:'si:/ or "en-bee-see") "a NY spokesman" (because "NY" is read as "New York"). Is it a FAQ or an FAQ? If you say "fack," use "a". If you say "eff-ay-cue," use "an". Such recent terms do not have a single, standard pronunciation.

Good Grief, It's Grammar Time!
Are grumbles all you hear when teaching grammar? Try a fresh approach a few new "hooks" your students will remember and check out a bunch of grammar sites on the Internet that will placate even the loudest grammar grumblers! Grammar! Can't live with it; can't live without it… As an English teacher in a middle school, it is incumbent on me to teach that most dreaded of subjects. But I've found that there ARE ways to make it a little less odious. Trying to humanize grammar as much as possible, I give students "hooks" to help them remember the rules. Let me share a few with you.
  • When I teach the progressive tense, I spin a tale about a very progressive Asian family on my block, the ING family. All in this family have the same last name. There is the dad, workING, the mom, inventING, and the children, learnING and studyING. The progressive family includes the present progressive, is or are studyING, and the past progressive, was or were studyING.
  • When I teach the perfect tense, I tell my class about my husband who, fortuitously, is named Ed. I spin a tale about a perfect person I know who is named ED, and that all in this family also have the same last name. The dad's name is workED, the mom inventED, and the children learnED and studiED. The perfect family includes the present perfect, have or has workED, and the past perfect tense, had workED. Then we go on to discuss "dysfunctional families," the irregular verbs.
