important grammar advice

(showing that even the most frivolous blogs can impart some knowledge sometimes.)

“Place your verbs correctly at all hazards. Never use the adverb for the adjective, or the adjective for the adverb. Never take liberties with the relative pronouns, or mingle in dire confusion tenses and moods. A careful study of the admirable grammar in this cyclopedia will keep the letter writer on the straight path.”

-The Letter Writer
-Collier’s Cyclopedia of Social and Commercial Information, 1882
