Question:

Parallel structure in English writing is when a writer uses words with the same pattern to express that multiple things have the same level of important. Which of these sentences is a correct example of parallel structure? Mariam likes running, dancing, and surfing. Mariam likes running, dancing, and to surf.

Andy M.
Answer:

The correct answer is "Mariam likes running, dancing, and surfing." With parallel structure, the verbs must all be conjugated in the same tense. This means if you use the -ing form in the first verb, all the other verbs must also be written in this form.

Question:

What is the difference between the pronunciation of "clothes" and "close"?

Andy M.
Answer:

In the word "clothes," the -"es" is pronounced like a typical 's' sound. In the word "close," the 's' is actually pronounced like a 'z.' If you are hearing the word and not reading it, you have to pay close attention to the context of the speaker's message to know which of these two words they mean.
