Jim and me is goin' down to slop the hogs

While reminding myself of the difference between an intransitive and a transitive verb, I came across this FAQ from Dictionary.com, which answers many of your grammar-related questions. There is, unfortunately, no mention of the me/myself/I discussion.

great page, I marked it as a favorite,
although I didn't see either of the answers I had previously heard/read about the whole nine yards, or that "gry" riddle.

I am so thankful for that "lay vs. lie" article. That one has stumped me for years.

But who, ah say who can tell me the plural of 'series' so that I don't actually have to look it up myself???

Nevermind, I looked it up. Was gravely disappointed that it isn't some cool word like 'serae'.

Excuse me, mmlle, but whenceforth doth thine post title issue?

You truly are as big of a language dork as I am! You rule! I've felt so alone all this time...little did I know that there were others (or AN other) out there like me. I, too, have marked the FAQ page in my favorites, and I, too, have been once again blissfully reminded of what the "lay"/"lie" issue truly is. But who the hell would say "She lay on the chaise all day"?

What IS the plural of series? The title comes from the me/myself/I link.

Lee: I would. If I had a chaise, I'd do it, too.

hey srah--

Unrelated to this post, but I was doing a google search for "ugly shoes" (don't ask) and the third hit was srah.net!

Better: "She has lain on the chaise all day."

The plural of series is...da da da dum! Series. Yup, it's that boring. I wanted something more interesting.

You and your stupid ugly shoes. Out. OUT!!!

gravatar srah - August 5, 2003 - 8:45 AM -

What's the matter with my ugly shoes, huh?
