- Bart Butler suggested that many people are confused about the difference between “who’s” and “whose.” “Who’s” is a contraction for “who is” or “who has.” “Who’s going to the concert?” or “Who’s been sleeping in my bed?” are both correct uses. “Whose” is the possessive form of “who” or occasionally “which.” “Whose dog won the contest?” or “The dog, whose nose was pink, won the contest” are both correct uses.
- Traditional grammar identifies eight parts of speech – noun, pronoun, verb, adverb, adjective, preposition, conjunction and interjection. If you’re feeling rusty about knowing which is which, go here for a quick review.
