Quick Grammatical Check · 11:11am June 24th

I would like to check some grammar without leaving the site or trying to find a dictionary. Please leave a comment if I'm wrong. Just to clear up any problems, I am English and don't know how it works in American English.


WHOSE or WHO'S

WHOSE shows ownership. Whose shoes are these?

WHO'S is short for "who has" and sometimes "who is." Who's eaten the chocolate cake?

Thanks to SunlightRays for pointing out my error!

"What? Another Grammar blog so soon? But, Comrade, our brains aren't ready!" I hear you scream.

Well, people of the internet, I have a question for you.

Adventures with adjectives. Wheeeee... · 1:42pm Feb 17th, 2019

Squeezing together the fuzzy brown caterpillars above her tiny green glaring eyes.

This simple sentence gave me so much trouble in The Woman! It felt right, but also wrong somehow; should there be commas wedged into those lists of adjectives? Or not? I wasn't sure. So I turned to The Only Grammar Book You'll Ever Need and the internet for help.

It's a question of if they are "compound" or "coordinate" adjectives.

Grammar! Again! Parts of Speech, or "Oh yeah, those things." · 9:20am Sep 15th, 2013

I realize now that I might have jumped the gun with my last post. A number of people approached me with confusion, the very people I sought to help!

Well, my friends, this just won't do.

I'll preface the meat of this blog post with a plea:

Please tell me when you are confused.

Grammar Check Fail · 7:00pm Apr 27th, 2017

Do tell how either of those suggestions are grammatically correct for that sentence, Microsoft Word, please do. :facehoof:

I'm used to Word's grammar check occasionally being squirrelly and/or too "by the book"...but this instance seemed comically bad given the sentence it was suggesting these corrections for. :rainbowlaugh:

Grammar and Punctuation · 5:38am Jan 24th, 2017

Hello!:twilightsmile:

This blog will serve as a directory for the blogs I have and will post for the grammar and punctuation lessons.

As I post more lessons, I will add the links here. Enjoy!

Grammar and Punctuation: Lesson 2, Part 2 · 12:57am Mar 10th, 2017

Subject to Your Consideration


The subject is the part of the sentence that performs the action indicated by the verb. In the sentence "Pickles Explode." the noun pickles is the subject. The subject of any sentence is a noun. The complete subject, as opposed to the simple subject, is a noun together with its modifiers.

That's right! I'm utterly bored, don't feel like reading or writing much, and thus, it's time to go over another batch of these.

Yup. Common Errors. The bane of every writer, and, more importantly, of me, whenever I read through the writings of these writers. The stuff I see the most highly rated and famed authors still doing wrong. And so, we get to another batch of self-editing hints! As always, Twist is ready to serve as bullet point in the list! :twistnerd:

Editing · 12:19am April 7th

Hi everyone. I have gotten some feedback that my grammar for the first few chapters is atrocious, and yes, I know it is. I'm in the process of editing it and if the grammar was the only reason to stop you from reading my story, then I implore you to give it another try. Thank you and good day.

How Good Is Your Grammar? · 6:08pm Jan 3rd, 2016

Good morning all!

Just wondering, how good is your grammar? I took a quick free test online. I fumbled through a lot of it, but managed to get a 70/100. I decided I needed to brush up on my grammar, so I just wanted to see where I was on a basic level. Guess I could use with a refresher course or something, heh.

About the Grammar Lessons · 8:25pm Oct 24th, 2016

I'm very sorry I've neglected to begin the lessons as I'd planned before. However, my excuse is completely relevant, as I've been busy with more life stuffs. Allow me the next week to get around to it, as it will be quite the lesson to start out with. Thanks for the patience!

Looking for a proofreader. · 4:23pm Apr 4th, 2017

Hi all, I know you probably weren't expecting this, but I need a proofreader. I think my fanfictions are okay, but I'm having a huge problem, typos. Pretty much every writer has these problems, and I try my hardest to minimilize them. But I can't always catch all them. So, I need someone to help me out. I have them all on google docs, so, all I need is someone to go on there and correct any errors you may find. I'd be more than happy to give you credit for doing so. And if you don't want to,
