10 Grammar Rules (To Avoid)

This is a list taken from the book, My Grammar and I (or should that be ‘Me’?), and I just want to share it with you all because I think it’s really great. 🙂

1.) Verbs has to agree with their subjects.

2.) Remember to never split an infinitive.

3.) Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary.

4.) Never se a big word when a diminutive one would suffice.

5.) Use words correctly, irregardless of how others elude to them.

6.) Use the apostrophe in it’s proper place and omit it when its not needed.

7.) Eliminate unnecessary references. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “I hate quotations.”

8.) Who needs rhetorical questions?

9) Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.

10.) Last but not least, avoid clichés like the plague.

Hope you found that as amusing as I did. Thanks for visiting, and I plan to write again, soon!
