Grammar Friday

Today’s two grammar tips:

  • If something catches your eye, it has piqued your interest. If you’ve climbed to the top of a mountain, you’ve reached the peak (and you probably achieved peak performance for yourself). If you’ve been told to close your eyes and not open them until you’re told to do so, you’ll probably try to peek anyway.
  • Leave as a verb means to depart or to go away from or cause to remain behind. Let as a verb means to allow or to permit. The use of these words can be tricky; try J.C. Cheney’s helpful teaching quiz as a way to become more comfortable with them.
