Grammar Friday

man_question_markToday’s two grammar tips:

  • The word “anyways” has slipped into the language, as in, “I don’t care if you drank all the water. I didn’t want any anyways.” The word should be “anyway.”
  • “Around” does not mean “about,” so don’t say, “I way around 160 pounds.” You weigh about 160 pounds. You might lose a few if you run around the neighborhood often and stop eating so much.
