5 Quick and Easy Grammar Tips

 

1. “The belief that ‘and’ should not be used to begin a sentence is without foundation. And that’s all there is to it.”
(author Bill Bryson, from ‘Troublesome Words’)

2.
YOU’RE means YOU ARE (the clue is in the apostrophe – it shows there’s something missing).
YOUR means belonging to you.

Finding the Words by Vimages (Pierre Vignau)

3.
UNIQUE means one-of-a-kind. Things can’t be quite unique or very unique. That’s impossible – like being a little bit pregnant. 

4.
THEY’RE (they are) going THERE (place) to get THEIR (possessive) belongings.

5.
 IT’S means IT IS (the apostrophe shows there’s something missing).
