Grammar Friday

Today’s two grammar tips:

  • “Beside” means “next to,” as in “Come stand beside me.” “Besides” means “in addition to” or “also,” as in “What are you studying besides math?” and “He was ill-prepared, and besides, he came late.”
  • The word “momentarily” means “for a moment,” not “in a moment.” So, I momentarily forgot where I put my keys, but we won’t be landing momentarily. We’ll be landing in a moment.
