    My mom taught me never to end a sentence with a proposition!

    It reminds me of the old joke where a guy on the Harvard campus asked a passerby where the library was at.
    The passerby huffed "At Harvard, we don't end sentences with prepositions".
    Whereby, the guy rephrased his question to "I'm sorry. Can you tell me where the library is at; azzhole".

    Batter instead of battery. Rare but cringeworthy.

    I do too, but I must confess that I don't understand the rules for its and it's. I just go with whatever Word tells me to correct it to.

    It's = "it is."

    Its = possessive form of "it," but the possessive form of "one" is "one's."

    Nobody ever said English was easy!

    Since "verb" is a noun, "verb our nouns" verbs a noun...

    Gerunding nouns a verb. Of course in this example we had to verb a noun ('gerund') before we could noun it.

    ... I think. o_O

    A proposition can result in a sentence.
