All I do is remember the common “e” in complEment and complEte. It seems to work. Daniel I must pay YOU a compliment. The grammar on your blog is always excellent. Given you often write the thing at 7 in the morning, I reckon that’s quite an achievement. Rog. Yes, that’s one thing I really appreciate about your blog too. The well written, thoughtful posts that show some time, and effort behind them. The words I always got mixed up when I was in grade school: county, and country. Finally practised them phonetically, and since then never had any troubles. But the word Labrinyth – now that ALWAYS trips me up and gets me second guessing myself. Excellent blog, my first read when I get home from work (at 7:30am!) Toria, try Labyrinth, deja vu! Konrad, now you’ve got me totally confused. CP… I’ll try that; thanks. Roger… psst… although I regularly post in the morning, often I write much of the entry the night before. Just like so many people get discreet and discrete confused – I’ve even it used incorrectly in newspapers that should know better: Discreet – without attracting attention Discrete – separate, individual, unrelated. Ok…today’s pet peeve out of the way! (and don’t get me started on the less VS fewer argument. BIGGEST pet peeve of mine, but a seemingly uphill battle)Fight the Good Fight! Niki, I agree completely with your pet peeve, the fewer said about it, the less heads will have to roll later. Comments are closed.
