      Commentary and usage suggestions on Latin abbreviations found on the web...
      • Latin Abbreviations (University of Michigan, US) All of these antiquated Latin abbreviations at one time had an important purpose. They functioned as a secondary, parenthetical language which sifted through, evaluated, qualified references for the reader. Eighteenth-century scholars used all of these designations as a way of talking to each other in code, telling each other what to expect from their sources. It was a natural mode of discourse for themthey all studied Latin, of course. Abbreviations of Latin Expressions (English Plus+, US) In standard writing, use the English equivalent or write out the whole word. Some common Latin expressions (University of Edinburgh, UK) Nowadays many publishers discourage the use of these Latin expressions and their abbreviations in footnotes and endnotes (presumably because so few people know what they mean!), but some publishers (Oxford University Press, for example) seem to insist on them. Anyway, these are the most commonly used in references, footnotes etc., should you come across them, or feel the urge to start using them yourselves. Abbreviations (Capital Community College, US)

    COM 421: Policies At the beginning of the semester, familiarize yourself with policies about important aspects of COM 421. The following information may be found on this page (scroll or click to jump down to a topic). Due Dates
    Due Dates for all assignments and other homework are listed in your instructor's syllabus for your section. Assignments are due on the day specified unless you have previously arranged a different date with the instructor. Some instructors allow late papers without penalty, some penalize late papers by lowering the grade, and others do not accept any late papers. Be sure to review your instructor's individual syllabus for the specific policy observed in your section. Major projects must be completed by the date assigned. During the first several weeks of the course, most homework assignments will emphasize readings and drafts. You should be familiar with assigned readings when you come to class, so that you will be prepared to participate in discussions. During the last half of the course, your homework will emphasize writing assignments for grades. Format for Written Assignments
    The first page of all written assignments should follow these guidelines (unless your instructor specifies otherwise): Firstname Lastname top line, aligned flush right, Helvetica or Arial font, size 12

    Guide Picks - Top French Grammar Books There are hundreds, maybe thousands of French grammar books available, each claiming to be the "best," the "most concise," the "most complete," etc. Obviously they can't all be the best, and in fact one of them must, by definition, be the worst. How do you know which is which? Well, that's where I come in - I have more than a dozen French grammar books, many of which I use regularly, and others which I might as well throw away. Here are my favorite grammar books: the ones that I use every day as well as those I've grown beyond, but keep because they once helped me so much. (The parentheses indicate the working language(s) of each book.) Le Bon Usage
    Originally published in 1936, this is the bible of French grammar - the most thorough French grammar book that exists. It has been republished more than a dozen times and is a must for fluent speakers. This is the book that native speakers refer to when they want to understand or explain some aspect of French grammar. (French)

      Course Description: Tenth grade English incorporates literature, vocabulary, PSAT prep, grammar, composition, and research.
      • The study of classic world literature will develop critical reading skills and encourage self-awareness by connecting universal themes and world problems to our own belief systems. We will expand our understanding of literature by making inferences and recognizing attitude, tone, and mood. It is important to keep up with the daily reading assignments, as you will need to know literary content to participate in classroom discussions and activities. Vocabulary will be taught both through outside reading and the vocabulary workbook. It will focus on understanding words in context and in their natural usage. We will also practice word associations and forming original sentences. PSAT prep will expand into analytical reading and analogy. We will do intensive work with practice PSAT tests in class.

    Before You Buy An Inventors Log Book An inventor's log book is used to record the progress of your inventing. You should start using one the moment you think of an idea for an invention. However, your log book must be of a certain type. You can buy a specially printed inventor's log book. You can also buy a generic bound notebook. The most important thing is that the pages of the notebook cannot be added or subtracted without that being evident.
    Before Buying Specially Printed Log Books
    Look for features like sequentially pre-printed numbered pages, fade-away backgrounds, spaces for you and a witness to sign and date, and instructions on how to use the journal to record your invention. Also look for pages with blue-lined grids for easy drawing. Some log books have special copy features; copy drawings on a light copier setting and the grid pattern fades away for preparing patent application drawings, or copy the drawings on a dark setting and the words, "Do Not Reproduce" appears for confidence usage.
