Question:

What is a comma splice and how do I fix it?

Inactive
Dhanya B.
Answer:

A comma splice means that you are trying to put together two independent clauses with just a comma, and that is not enough. Since independent clauses can stand on their own as sentences, you can fix it by either separating them or connecting them appropriately. To separate the two clauses into sentences, you can use a semi-colon or a period. To connect the clauses into one sentence, you should utilize a conjunction (eg. and, but) with the comma.

Question:

What does the phrase "take a rain check" mean?

Answer:

If someone asks to take a rain check, it means that they are unavailable or cannot make an appointment. It also implies the intention to meet at a later time rather than canceling the meeting altogether.

Question:

How do I know when to use "me" or "I" when making a statement including someone else? Eg: Me and my brother are going to the grocery store.

Answer:

The best tip to know whether to use "I" or "me" is to take out the other person from the statement and see which word fits best in the sentence. Eg: Me is going to the grocery store vs. I am going to the grocery store. Then, you want to be sure to place your personal pronoun at the end rather than the beginning. Eg: My brother and I are going to the grocery store.
