Casey said...


Casey said "After reading everyone's comments, and probably my own, I ask that Jake do a blog on the proper uses of the following words and grammatical points"

In honor of Casey finally learning how to use a computer and the internet, today's blog is a spelling lesson. Everyone needs to practice the following words until you get them right. I have listed each word with an example sentence next to it. Hopefully this will make future comment posting much less painful for the readers. Good luck!

To: I hope Casey will take me to the hot dog stand.
Two: I only want one hot dog, but I'm sure Casey wants two.
Too: Oh who am I kidding, I do too!
Toot: Those two hot dogs made me toot.

Sense: It made no sense when Justin decided to live with Matt in our third year of college.
Since: There have been many changes since Obama took office.
Cents: I just bought some used women's underwear for 10 cents.
Sense and Sensibility: Chick flick based on Jane Austen's novel.

Their: Their hot air balloon has a hole in it.
There: Their hot air balloon is going to crash over there.
They're: They're going to die in a fiery hot air balloon accident.
There-There: What old people say to you when you're upset.

Encase: My body was encased in the huge vat of queso.
In case: In case I never get out, I want my family to know I died a happy man.
Briefcase: I hope there is a spoon in my briefcase.

Commas: Commas should be used anytime your sentence needs a pause. If you read your sentence aloud and you pause naturally while reading it, then there is a good chance that you should insert a comma. You should also use them when listing things out or describing things with multiple adjectives.

Examples:
1. I made 18 pancakes, but I could not finish them all.
2. Dwight's favorite things include bears, beets, and Battlestar Galactica. (AP style says not to use the second comma, but I disagree)
3. Although I am slow mentally, I could kill you in a foot race.

  24. Great blog entry. Though I do believe Jake's centsorship has become a little lax.

    Also, I am confused about the proper usage of aisle, isle, and Ailsa. I may never figure that one out.
