My mom taught me never to end a sentence with a proposition!
Reminds me with the quip apparently misattributed to Winston Churchill, about "nonsense up with which I will not put."
An interesting analysis of the problem:
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".
We stand on the shoulders of giants. . .
I get a big kick out of peoples use of apostrophe's in plural's and possessive's'.
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...
What about nouning a verb?
Now that is an interesting ask.
Did you axe him something?
that was kinda the point. . .
Gerunding nouns a verb. Of course in this example we had to verb a noun ('gerund') before we could noun it.
... I think.
A proposition can result in a sentence.
Not if you're slick, like that former President.
Or if you don't bother with the proposition, like the current president.
