Yesterday, a creep geek hacked into this blog and inserted some coding that prevented access to the blog. I have nothing but contempt for such a low life.
I am happy to report that the blog continues to operate and is, as far as I know, fully functional, but if you experience any problems, let me know with a Comment. All comments are vetted before being published and none is posted if such is requested, so there should be no fear of being identified or contacted.
Please continue to enjoy the blog. And feel free to invite friends to enjoy it also.
By the way: let me know if the new look is more appealing. I hope so.
TWO FOR ONE
Identify and correct the errors in the following piece.
“The animosity started late last year when a new slate of people were acclaimed to the committee, which had been led for many years by Windsor allergist Dr. Sukdev Kooner; who is said to have donated $2 million to construct the new temple.”
Brian Cross, “Sikhs split by feuds, allegations of violence”, The Windsor Star, Thursday, July 22, 2010.
The word for today is “severally“.
What part of speech is “severally“?
Define “severally” and use it in a sentence.
Take note of the wealth of material presented in the sections to the right titled Recent Posts and Archives.
Recent Posts lists the last five English usage posts, and clicking on a title immediately opens that day’s entry. It is a neat and quick means to read the most recent postings of the blog.
Archives displays a calendar, and by clicking on any high-lighted date the blog entry for that day is displayed. Additionally, all blog entries that have ever been posted on Michael’s English Usage are available, and I am proud to say that that consists of more than three years of entries.
Click on Recent Posts and Archives and enjoy the correct use of the English language. What is even better, in a delightfully cynical fashion, is seeing and correcting so many errors that are made by professional writers.
