Using Semicolons:

Do you use dashes as your primary form of punctuation? If so, it’s time to learn more about semicolons and commas and when to actually use dashes.

Using Commas:

A misplaced comma can have a devastating effect on your document. Okay, perhaps “devastating” is too strong a word, but commas do show readers how to make sense of information. If you need some brushing up on your comma skills, check this baby out.

Sentence Fragments:

A complete sentence must. Include a subject and a verb. See how we did that? Those are sentence fragments; learn more how to ensure that your sentences are complete in this jewel.

Possessives versus plurals:

Are you the kind of writer who uses prepositional phrases just to avoid figuring out if a possessive or plural is required? If so, and if you’re not quite sure what a prepositional phrase is, this little beauty will teach you.
