   Thank you for providing this excellent resource! When writing for business or pleasure, I often have come across a question regarding proper grammar and have been at a loss. In just the few minutes I took reviewing this website, I have gained a better understanding of several grammatical rules. Thank you!!!

Jami Frank  3/7/99  7:47:47 PM
   This is the best grammar site on the Internet!!! I was so pleased with it that I spent my entire Sunday taking the quizzes. Great job.

Mark Foster (write_to_mark@yahoo.com {should you care to})  3/9/99  4:01:14 PM
   Your Grammar quiz question that has a committee returning "their four reports" seems to me to require some interpretation. If the committee is composed of four members, each of whom is invited to produce a version of the report, then I am in agreement with your position that "their" is the preferred pronoun. But suppose the committee comprises seventeen members who must produce a total of four versions. Then I think that "the committee handed in ITS four reports" sounds better. The use of "their" seems to be based on the fact that the committee members are working on their own and that the number of reports and members is equal. If the four reports are a group product, let us have "committee" be a collective noun.

Jonas Myron Motes Junior  3/10/99  4:02:12 PM
   I found the quizzes boring and no fun what so ever

mark smith  3/10/99  4:05:50 PM

   I am 51 years ago, licensed to practice law in two states, and I can only write and spell on a 6th or 7th grade level. I have been looking for web sites to help me finally learn English when I found yours. I have just started on it, but it looks like a good site. I am not sure how to go about the task but I am going to try taking it a little at a time. I will try to keep you up dated on my progress. Thanks for the great web site.

ling ei kwuong  3/25/99  2:02:31 AM
   can you tell me what the meaning and when i have to use these words? (bruises,motorist,victim,drowsy,injuries,vision & visibility)

Jocelyn  3/25/99  7:42:52 AM
   i really enjiy reading this hp.It teaches us throughly. as a englisg-as second-language speaker,it's very difficult to write and to write and speak well.i think the best method to write well is to do more compositions and learn from mistakes. Maybe u can add a colume on a english composition contest, and let foreign students to submit their work. It will help a lot if u can also correct their mistakes, and post it n net so that everyone can learn from it. I really want to improve my english writing skills,and i felt like this is the best english teaching web site on the net!

Wen Scottwatt  3/27/99  8:29:07 AM

   Your program is very useful to me as a student. I wonder, do you have some lessons about "Toefl" for "vocabulary and grammer" for us? If you do, can you please put it on this program and E-mail to me after you put it on, thank you. I really love this program as a home schooling because I learn a lot from here.

Matthew Miller  4/15/99  11:02:06 AM
   Seems like a useful site for teachers. Thanks, Grammar! P.S. Are you the Grammar who got run over by a reindeer, coming home from our house Christmas Eve? You may say there's no such thing as Santa, but as fer me and Grandpaw, we believe -- or was that some other Grammar?

Mortimer Snerd  4/15/99  11:09:13 AM
   Hi, Grammar English! Love your site. It is very useful. You must be the Grammar in that poem, "Do you herd sheep?" my Grammar cried -- My Grampar leaped in fright -- "That Grammar's wrong," to me he sighed -- "Have you heard sheep" is right. Keep the good work! (apologies to Walt Kelly)

Sharon Priest  4/15/99  11:10:57 AM
   I am a "non-traditional" student in a small university in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. My transfer credits of twenty years old were accepted by the school, imagine my surprise! So I knew that I would need a refresher course to come up to speed to pass the Praxis next year, this site is the answer to my prayers. Thank you for having this site. Sincerely, Sharon Priest

Carrie Gagnon  4/15/99  3:21:39 PM
   I am trying to find an example of an "Active Speech" for a college paper. Please help.

   I have been searching for definitive information on the good or bad usage of possessives. My boss is telling me that they are not appropriate to use in a user's manual. Your page on Possessive Forms is just what I need to convince him that one can use possessives to get the point across. Thanks for the reference.

Kevin T. McGing  4/28/99  12:57:14 PM

   Hi, Excellent page! I hope you don't mind that I've added a link to your page for my HS English students.

Barry M. Ho  4/29/99  10:44:12 AM
   Fabulous idea. This web site is a great resource for grammar. I'll be using it regularly, and recommending to many others. Great stuff!
