Guidelines for Language
  • Don’t use ‘till while writing. Use until while writing.
  • If there is a list with commas, don’t forget to use an and for the final word in the list.
  • Their (ownership), they’re (they are) and there (Is he going there)…when do we use them?

Guidelines for Language
  • Remember to have paragraphs for a change of thought.
  • Use conjunctions like / but to continue the same thought, but add new information. For example, don’t say: I went to the store, but we moved to St. Louis. Say: I went to the store, but there was no milk there.
  • Know how to use then (next) and than (comparison).
  • Use and to connect thoughts…don’t say “We lived in Piedmont for two years then we moved to Rapid City.” Make sure you say and then.
