Grammarmarks.com is Coming Soon !

May 7th, 2011 by Michael Tabor

Whadawethink is adding another site on grammar. If you have a question or are unsure about whether or not your interoffice memo is grammatically correct, there’s only one place to go – grammarmarks.com (not ready yet)
One of our fun features will include difficult words or phrases of the day. Here is an example:

· Many people misspell the informal expression- “He’s a shoe-in (meaning sure winner) to win the election.” The correct spelling is shoo-in.
· “There are less people in the building.” This is incorrect – proper usage “There are fewer people in the building.”
The rule for the latter is if the noun is countable use few. If it is not countable like water or speed, use less.
