Wow! I never knew that semi colons could be used to seperate phrases in a list, that clears up so much. Thanks a bunch!

I found this chapter to be most helpful since I don't remember running across it in any of my English classes ever. All the examples were great and understandable except for the last example of number five, "Sylvia, Ben's, his and my movie was a real bore." I think it's avoidable if it's rephrased, but if a writer insists on a sentence similar as that, can you expand on it? I feel like I'm half way understanding it.
A suggestion from someone who's still a little confused with writing and English, a section explaining 'Was vs. Were', when to end a paragraph, and run on sentences would be amazing. It's something that I've always struggled with.

Really enjoyed this so far! I love dialogue and still figuring out my style in terms of writing dialogue. Reviewing rules for dialogue is helpful because sometimes I forget. I like the idea of writing down "said" and "ask" words and think I am going to do that. You got an entertaining writing style. I read this in the voice of a sarcastic young grandmother funny enough.

I am so happy I stumbled upon your page.
This was a much-needed refresher on semicolons, so thank you!

Finally! Found something that gives sense to writing. It's like a grammar for dummies. Thanks!

"English" is a proper noun and should be capitalized. (ie. [E]nglish teacher).
"In fact, she admitted to me that even SHE, the teacher, wasn't exactly comfortable with semicolons and thus tends to avoid them." I think "tends" might need to become "tended," due to parallelism.

"You're just lucky the Bad Pun Police don't read your site!" I think it should be "doesn't" instead of "don't." Unless that was a stylistic choice.
The "you're" vs. "your" is at the top of my pet peeve list, haha.

Ch 3: "I see that tend to err on the side of caution..." Missing an "I" before "tend." (This is in the last few paragraphs).

This chapter helped me a lot!
Thank you for posting this . . .
I'm sure you have mentioned this in your writing, but I feel the need to state it again . . . It's so hard to find a good grammar book that doesn't bore people. Keep on writing! :)

When I was still struggling with to and too, I found a palindrome that really helped out:
"Too hot to hoot."
If it can be read the same backwards and forwards, you have the right to/too in the right place.

This is an awesome Grammar Guide but Sheeps isn't a word just thought I'd tell you. But anyway so far so good.
