Commas in a Series

    more words, phrases, or clauses in a series.
    A conjunction goes between the last two items
  • of the series.
  •

  • Words Use commas to separate three or more
    words, phrases, or clauses.
  • Phrases This morning I woke up, got dressed,
    brushed my teeth, and ate breakfast.
  • Clauses In fact, the bus was full of people who
    got dressed, who brushed their teeth, and who ate
    breakfast this morning.

    earlier in the text (its antecedent) and must
    agree in number singular/plural with the
    thing to which it refers.

    subject-verb agreement, spelling

    there fruits.
  • Corrections double negative, reflexive pronoun,
    semicolon
  • A redwood tree wont never burn because its bark
    is so thick the tree protects it from fire this
    way.

9
There/Their (1of 2)
  • Rule There is a noun, an adverb, a pronoun, or
    an adjective, but it does not show possession.
    Only the word their (not there) shows possession.
  • Their is almost always followed by a noun. That
    is not true of the word there, which often
    stands alone as noun or pronoun.
  • Example We walked their dog for them while they
    were on vacation.
  • May I please sit there?

10
Reflexive Pronoun (2 of 2)
  • Rule When the subject and the object in a
    sentence refer to the same person or thing we use
    a reflexive pronoun. If you are using you in the
    plural, the reflexive pronoun is yourselves.

Subject Pronouns Reflexive Pronouns
I Myself
You Yourself
He Himself
She Herself
It Itself
We Ourselves
You (pl) Yourselves
They Themselves
