    For free" is grammatically incorrect because "free" is not a noun, and this means it cannot be preceded by "for" (a preposition). In their view, something is "sold for nothing" or is "sold free."

    I have a nephew named Miles. When I write to my niece, should I ask if Miles's birthday is Friday, or if Miles' birthday is Friday?

    • Sings
      It makes more sense to me to write Miles' but I suspect either would be acceptable. To hear someone speak an extra 's' sound makes me cringe as well.

    I am editing a book for English as a second language students. I have just come across this sentence:
    What does the writer say in his book?
    Surely this should be:
    What did the writer say in his book?
    Help please.

    My niece always loved the American girl dolls but never had one. As a gift when she graduated from college I gave her a doll and I wrote this poem to go along with it. She loved it!

    I frequently see statements like this and the it just sounds wrong to me. "The dog was unable to be saved from the fire." Here I'm told it is correct. Wouldn't it be better to write. "The firefighters were unable to save the dog." ?

    I posted the following sentences:

    "Drivers follow posted speed limits."

    They can't both be correct, folks! I say the apostrophe is an error. What say you?

      Drivers--if you mean more than one. The first one (Driver's) cannot be correct in the sentence as it's written.

    Heavy rollers means, a big gambler (who spends big bucks) or a big baller.
    My friend said that I was a heavy roller, I asked him what did it mean. He said "I had to have the best" I still hadn't figured that out yet.

    Although medieval times are well behind us, the literary greatness of Beowulf is not. Several generations have yet had the opportunity to read this timeless work. The poem proves in and of itself to be a pillar of literary excellence, its prose holds beauty in places beauty is not often seen. ----Not often seen is passive voice ---- how to change?

    Thank you all for such a memorable day. You all have given me much to hold on to but I will cherish this day forever more. As it poured down rain this evening, I couldn’t help but think…Thats Granddad, Grandma and our baby Jenny letting us know that they were there, sharing this very moment. For it is the love they shared with us that we too could share with each other.

    Can you say "a little instruction?" Like in a sentence - Here's a little instruction. It doesn't feel right but I can't explain why.
    LikeReply 22 years ago
    • Soulwriter
      Yes, you can say, 'Here's a little instruction for you' - instruction meaning general guidance, or 'Could I offer you some instruction?' - again, the word 'instruction' refers to general, not specific, guidance.
      If you want to refer to one or a few specific instructions, here are some alternatives:- 'Here are some pointers'
      - Here is a list of instructions'
      - 'Here's a little guidance to get you started'

      What you say depends on what you are trying to say, to who and in what context.
