Grammar Friday

Here are today’s two grammar tips:

  • Do you have trouble with the tenses of irregular verbs? Do you think that because the past tense of “ring” is “rang,” the past tense of “swing” must be “swang”? (If so, you’re wrong.) When you’re in doubt, go to the Irregular Verb Dictionary for help.
  • “Eminent” means “illustrious” or “highly regarded.” “Imminent” means “about to occur.” The appearance of the eminent musician was imminent.
