Ow, quit it. I try not to get snitty about the crappy English usage of other people. I breathe in through my nostrils and slowly out again with my mouth shaped like an "o," reminding myself that not everyone spent her childhood on the floor of a closet with a two-foot stack of library books and a handful of Chips Ahoy, that not everyone's mind works the way mine does, that not everyone shares my savant-like ability to spot a quotation mark facing the wrong way or a misspelling of "disestablishmentarianism" at a hundred paces. I understand that a lot of schools don't pay enough attention to proper usage, so kids don't learn proper usage and therefore they don't know proper usage as adults. I understand that a person with a learning disability will have a few problems nailing correct spelling, and that a brain geared to math might not bat as well from the other side of the plate. Yes, I can identify and parse a gerundive. It's a curse. Not everyone bears the curse. But.

The Case for Case
By M. M. Trent
W Pronouns in the nominative case are: I, you, he, she, it, they and who. Pronouns in the objective case are: me, you, him, her, it, us, them, and whom. Carelessness in using pronouns in their proper case can make our writing not only unclear, but can make a writer or speaker appear under educated, as well. As writers, it is important for us to maintain high standards. Take a few moments to review these rules. Only when writing dialect in a story or poem should the rules of grammar and usage be relaxed. Those of us who write, and appreciate the skillful use of the language when we see it employed by others, should always strive to ground our work in the very best grammar and usage.

Hints for Effective Writing, Grammar, and Usage These suggestions arose out of my grading written assignments and research papers in various classes. They include common errors and suggestions for improving your writing. Remember that you must practice professional business writing skills to be able to use them. I estimate that 75% of the points lost for inappropriate grammar, usage, and style could have been avoided if the student had carefully proofed his or her paper. Do not rely solely on spell-check and grammar-check functions of Word. Proof your paper "cold" or after not having read it in 24 hours. Grammar and Usage
  • Do not use contractions in business writing (can't, don't). Where possible, use third person. Avoid using first person unless the assignment has you writing about a personal experience or opinion. Commas and periods are always placed inside closing quotations. Even if you are only quoting one "word," place the comma or period inside the closing quotation. In a list of phrases, make sure the form of the phrase is consistent. Instead of, "One would prefer living in Montana, to buy groceries at Albertson's, and a nice apartment," write, "One would prefer living in Montana, buying groceries at Albertson's, and renting a nice apartment."

    Common Grammatical Errors
    Some Basic Concepts
      By definition, a sentence has the following properties:
        it contains a subject
        it contains a verb
        it expresses a complete thought
      E.g., the sentence "Japan prospers" has a subject: "Japan"; a verb: "prospers"; and it conveys a complete thought or idea that makes sense. Most sentences also have an object (receiver of the action); e.g., in the sentence "John kicked the ball," the object is "the ball."
    Run-on Sentences (fused sentences)

      I jogged everyday; I wanted to get fit.
      I jogged everyday. I wanted to get fit.
      Since I wanted to get fit, I jogged everyday.
      Trying to get fit, I jogged everyday. Run-on sentences occur when two main clauses have no punctuation between them.

    Correct Use of "It's" and "Its"
    It's (with an apostrophe) is a contraction for it is . It can only be used correctly for this purpose. Its (without an apostrophe) is the possessive form of it.
    It's going to be a beautiful day. Its beauty lay in its simplicity.
    Punctuation and Quotations
  • Periods and commas always go inside the closing quotation marks.
    Incorrect: Roosevelt declared, "We have nothing to fear but fear itself". Correct: . . . fear itself." Incorrect: Nixon declared, "I am not a crook", but the evidence was contrary. Correct: . . . not a crook," but . . .
  • Exclamation marks go inside quotation marks. Question marks go inside quotation marks if they are part of the quoted material; outside if not. Colons and semicolons go outside of quotation marks.
  • In a sentence, a quotation is preceded by a comma unless the introductory phrase is very formal, ending in words or phrases like thus or the following . In such cases the quotation is preceded by a colon. Also, a sentence which introduces a block quotation ends with a colon.

    Some Common Grammar and Usage Mistakes in Undergraduate Philosophy Papers
    University of Minnesota at Morris
    "They" and "their" are not singular pronouns. "They" and "their" are plural pronouns, not singular ones. So the following sentence isn't grammatically correct: "Chisholm thinks for someone to responsible for their actions, they have to have the ability to do otherwise." "Someone" is a singular pronoun, whereas "their" and "they" are plural pronouns. The following sentence contains a similar mistake: "A person who cares only about their own happiness will not achieve happiness." Students often use 'they' and 'their' as generic singular pronouns because they want to avoid using 'he' and 'his,' which are male pronouns, to refer to people generally. There are other ways to avoid this, however. It's vs. its, who's vs. whose, and you're vs. your The word it's is always a contraction of it is; to see if it's correct to use it's, substitute in the phrase "it is" and see if it makes sense. The possessive form of the pronoun it is its

    79. GMAT Grammar
    This is the part of grammar that the GMAT concentrates on. Faulty usage. CorrectNeither Jane nor Katarina believes she passed the final.
    The field of grammar is huge and complextomes have been written on the subject. This complexity should be no surprise since grammar deals with the process of communication.
    GMAT grammar tests only a small part of standard written English. Grammar can be divided into two parts: Mechanics and Usage.
    Mechanics concerns punctuation, capitalization, etc. It is not tested on the GMAT nearly as often as is usage. So don't spend too much time worrying whether the comma is in the right place or whether a particular word should be capitalized.
    Usage concerns how we choose our words and how we express our thoughts: in other words, are the connections between the words in a sentence logically sound, and are they expressed in a way that conforms to standard idiom? This is the part of grammar that the GMAT concentrates on. Six major categories of usage are tested:
    Pronoun Errors
    Subject-Verb Agreement
    Misplaced Modifiers
    Faulty Parallelism
    Faulty Verb Tense
    Faulty Idiom PRONOUN ERRORS
    A pronoun is a word that stands for a noun, known as the antecedent of the pronoun. The key point for the use of pronouns is this: pronouns must agree with their antecedents in both number (singular or plural) and person (first, second, or third).
    Example: Steve has yet to receive his degree.

    Archaic English Grammar
    Some people like to speak or write in archaic English because they think it's cute to say something like "I thinketh thou stinketh!" Methinks they should at least try to get the archaic grammar correct . (Can you spot all the errors in the above "archaic" sentence?) This page is to help you get the grammar right when you decide to get medieval with your language. The question, of course, then comes up of just which era of archaic English you should be emulating. Languages are in a state of constant change. The Old English of AD 800 looks completely foreign to modern English speakers, and our descendants in the year 3200 probably will think the same of the English we use now. Usually what people mean by "archaic English" is the variety that was spoken around AD 1500, when the language was transitioning from "Middle English" to "Modern English", so that's what I use here. If you go much earlier than that, you'll really confuse people with things like "heo" in place of "she", "hit" in place of "it", and "hem" in place of "them".
    Pronouns and their Verb Conjugations
    These are the things people use most often to "affect" an archaic feel to their language. Here are the correct usages:
