Grammar Follies

The Standard Deviants look at sentence problems, including sentence fragments, comma splices, and run-on sentences. Then we examine common grammatical traps, such as tense shifts, vague pronoun references, and faulty parallels. We'll wrap things up with a look at acceptable grammar "errors"—like the use of contractions, splitting infinitives, and using prepositions at the end of sentences. Topics include: Sentence Fragments, Comma Splices, Run-On Sentences, Tense Shifts, Vague Pronoun References, Faulty Parallels, and Acceptable Errors.

Agreeing With Grammar

The Standard Deviants discuss how a word that usually works as one part of speech can put on a disguise and pretend to be another part of speech, including nouns as verbs and verbs as nouns. Then it's time to tackle proper agreement in grammar, including subject/verb agreement and proper agreement between nouns and articles. Topics include: Nouns as Verbs, Verbs as Nouns, Subject/Verb Agreement, Noun/Pronoun Agreement, Adjective/Noun Agreement, and Noun/Article Agreement.
