Yes @ lucy lenn. Perhaps when you were a little girl someone you loved used to tell you this story:We were all sitting around the campfire, and the Captain said to me, "Antonio, tell us a story!" And so I began ...We were all sitting around the campfire, and the Captain said to me, "Antonio, tell us a story!" And so I began ...We were all sitting around the campfire.....
Nice work, Warsaw Will!
re: itsthree, still counting
Doesn't anybody teach the rules for spelling its and it's any more? This thread has at least two misspelled itses. What's up with that? It's a pretty simple rule.
"Gift" as a verb - so ugly !
Olen, you made that rule up out of thin air. Also, your "therefore" needs to be preceded by a semicolon, for "therefore" is not a coordinating conjunction; rather, it's a type of adverb.
But we shouldn't use "and so." Just use "so" alone; it's a coordinating conjunction. A comma precedes it, but none follows it - just like other coordinating conjunctions - and it's one of the c.c.'s that can begin a sentence, though many teachers think it can't.
It's also quite a good word, don't you think?
Using "therefore" and "thus" repetitively is more clunky and in my opinion a greater sin than using "so" repetitively.
"Tic" not "tick." Agreed.
the antonym of transitive awaken is put to sleep. the antonym of intransitive awaken is fall asleep. that's all there is; but I love some of the made-up words in these comments, my favorite is sleepen. very creative! g2g now, it's time to sleepen my little ones.
