Articles:
  • A OR AN - A becomes an before a vowel or before h mute for the sake of euphony or agreeable sound to the ear.
  • ALONE - ALONE is another word which creates ambiguity and alters meaning.
  • AM COME—HAVE COME - When the subject is not a person, the verb to be should be used in preference to the verb to have.
  • AND WITH THE RELATIVE - Never use and with the relative in this manner: "That is the dog I meant and which I know is of pure breed." This is an error quite common.
  • AND — TO — AND WHICH - AND—Not to be used instead of to after such words as come and try. Also do not insert and immediately before etc.
  • APPRECIATE - Appreciate—"To esteem highly; estimate aright." It should not be used in the sense of "know "or "understand," nor should it be modified by greatly or very much.
  • AS — AS SO - AS ... AS, SO . . . AS — Use as ... as in affirmative statements and so ... as in negative ones.
  • ATTRACTION - Very often the verb is separated from its real nominative or subject by several intervening words and in such cases one is liable to make the verb agree with the subject nearest to it.
  • AWFUL — AWFULLY - The correct meaning of aweful or awefully is: "inspiring awe; solemnly impressive"; or meaning "Extremely bad or unpleasant; terrible."
  • BESIDE — BESIDES - In present usage, beside is used as a preposition only, and means "by the side of; near." Besides is chiefly an adverb, and means "in addition (to); moreover."
  • BETWEEN—AMONG - Between has reference to two objects only, among to more than two.
  • BROKEN CONSTRUCTION - Sometimes the beginning of a sentence presents quite a different grammatical construction from its end.
  • CAN — MAY - Can and could denote ability; may and might denote permission or sanction.
  • CUSTOM — HABIT - Custom is the repetition of the same act under the same circumstances and may apply to a single individual or to a body of people.
