  • Period and era are capitalized when used with a specific interval

grammar
Grammar
  • “Being” is a noun; it is not a form of the verb “to be”
  • So, usage such as “this being the case” or “being that these fossils are found…” is INCORRECT!
  • Pronouns refer to the preceeding noun
grammar1
Grammar
  • What is wrong with this passage?
  • “The trilobites occur in association with symmetrical ripples. Frequently, they are missing their heads.”
  • Two things!
  • The pronoun “they” refers to the ripples, not the trilobites; ripples have no heads to be missing!
  • Frequently, carries a time connotation. It would be preferable to use “commonly”
grammar2
Grammar
  • When using “to try” with another verb, the correct form is:
  • “to try to do …” NOT “to try and do…” This is one action, not two.
