Description

Should there be an apostrophe in "its"? What's the difference between "i.e." and "e.g."? Should I write "ensure" or "insure"? What's wrong with the word "lite"? Should I say "who" or "whom"? Should I write "My partner and I" or "My partner and me"? Is it correct to say "May I" or "Can I"? Find the answers to these - and many other - grammatical puzzles in The Grammar Cookbook! The Grammar Cookbook is an easy-to-read reference that shows you how to avoid the most common grammatical errors. It is presented in a non-technical, easy-going style in a topic-per-page format: browse through it at your leisure or quickly look up the answers to specific questions. Sections Section 1: Punctuation Apostrophes, commas, colons, dashes, hyphens: which should you use (or not), and when? Find out here! Section 2: Word Usage "Everyday" or "every day"? A collection of everyday word usage errors, with explanations and examples of correct usage. Section 3: Confusables Words that look and/or sound similar, but have quite different meanings.
