Unit 14::Prepositions, Conjunctions, and Interjections
-prepositions are words that indicate location. USUALLY, prepositions show the location in the
physical word. However, they can also show time.
-some of the common prepositions includes…
 under, over, after, before, inside, outside, on, in, next to, behind, infront, above,
across, around, during, toward, between, underneath, off, beneath
-a prepositional phrase is a group of words that begins with a preposition and ends with a noun or
pronoun, which is called the object of the preposition.
-when a pronoun is the object of a preposition, use an object pronoun and not a subject pronoun.
-some of the object pronouns includes…
 me, us, you, him, her, it, them
-some of the subject pronouns includes…
 I, we, you, he, she, it, they
-prepositional phrases functioning as an adjective describes a noun or a pronoun
-prepositional phrases functioning as an adverb describes a verb, an adjective, or another adverb
-tips for telling prepositions and adverbs apart…
 If the word is followed closely by a noun, the word in probably a preposition, and the
noun is its object
 If the word id not followed closely by a noun, then the word is probably an adverb
-common conjunctions: and, or, but
-correlative conjunctions: either, or; neither, nor; both, and
-expresses strong feeling
-some of the common interjections includes…
oh no…
Unit 15:: Subject-Verb Agreement
Subject Verb Agreement
 A subject and its verb must agree in number. A singular noun subject takes a singular
verb, and a plural noun takes a plural verb
 A subject pronoun and its verb must also agree. Add an –s ending to verbs for the present
tense of she, he, and it
Locating the Subject
 Sentences that begin with here or there can fool you. Note that here and there is never the
subject of the sentence. The subject will fall after the verb.
Agreement with Compound Subjects
 A compound subject consists of two or more subjects that have the same verb. They verb
must agree in number with its compound subject. If the compound subject is joined by
and or by both…and, then the verb is plural.
 If the compound subject is joined by or, nor, either…or, neither…nor, the verb agrees in
number with the subject CLOSER to it.
Unit 18::Capitalization
-this chapter is pretty self-explanatory, so here are some of the rules…
 Capitalize the first word of every sentence
 Capitalize the first word of a direct quotation that is a complete sentence. A direct
quotation gives a speaker’s exact words
 When a quoted sentence is interrupted by explanatory words, such as she explained, do
not begin the second part of the sentence with a capital letter. When the second part of a
quotation is a new sentence, put a period after the interrupting expression and begin the
second part of the quotation with a capital letter.
 Do not capitalize an indirect quotation. An indirect quotation does not repeat a person’s
exact words and does not appear in quotation marks. It is often introduced by the word
 Capitalize the first word in the salutation and closing of a letter. Capitalize the title and
name of the person addressed.
 Capitalize names and initials. (e.g. J.K. Rowling)
 Capitalize a title or an abbreviation of a title when it comes before a person’s name or
when it is used instead of a name. (e.g. General James Wolfe, Captain)
Capitalize abbreviations of academic degrees. Capitalize Jr. and Dr. (e.g. Darshana
Hegde, Ph. D., Martin Luther King, Jr.)
Capitalize words that show family relationships when used as titles (e.g. Uncle Dan)
Do NOT capitalize words that show family relationships when they follow a possessive
noun or pronoun. (e.g. Danae’s aunt)
Always capitalize the pronoun I. (e.g. I always capitalize I.)
Capitalize the names of cities, counties, states, countries, and continents. (e.g. Shanghai,
Capitalize the names of water and other geographical features. (e.g. Mississippi River,
Himalaya Mountains)
Capitalize the names of sections of country. (e.g. New England)
Capitalize compass points when they refer to a specific section of the country. (e.g. the
West Coast)
Do NOT capitalize compass points when they indicate directions. (e.g. south of Los
Capitalize the names of streets and highways. (e.g. Monroe Street)
Capitalize the names of clubs, organizations, businesses, institutions, and political parties.
(e.g. SMIC Private School, Boy Scouts)
Capitalize brand names but not the nouns following them. (e.g. Skippy peanut butter)
Capitalize the names of important historical events, periods of time, and documents. (e.g.
Vietnam War, Age of Renaissance, Bill of Rights)
Capitalize names of days of the week, months of the year, and holidays. Do not capitalize
names of the season. (e.g. Thursday, June, Christmas, summer)
Capitalize the first word, the last word, and all important words in the title of a book, play,
short story, poem, essay, article, film television series, song, magazine, newspaper, and
chapter of a book. (e.g. A Wrinkle in Time, Thomas and Friends, New York Times)
Capitalize the names of ethnic groups, nationalities, and languages. (e.g. Asian,
Singaporean, Spanish)
Unit 19:: Punctuation
-this unit is also pretty self-explanatory so here are some rules again…
 Use periods to end declarative or imperative sentences.
 Use a question mark to end an interrogative sentence.
 Use an exclamation mark to end an exclamatory sentence or after an interjection.
 Use commas to separate three or more items in a series.
 Use a comma to show a pause after an introductory word.
 Use a comma after two or more prepositional phrases at the beginning of a sentence.
 Use commas to set off words that interrupt the flow of though in a sentence.
 Use commas to set off names used in direct address.
 Use commas in a compound sentence.
 Use commas in the salutation and closing of friendly letters.
 Use commas to prevent misleading. (e.g. Let’s eat Grandpa!  Let’s eat, Grandpa!
Commas. They save lives :)
 Use commas before and after the year when it is used with both the month and the day in
a sentence. Do NOT use a comma if only the month and the year or the month and the
day are given. (e.g. I was born on June 2, 1999, in the night. I was born on June 2. I was
born on June 1999)
Use commas before and after the name of a state or country when it is used with the name
of a city. (e.g. San Francisco, California. New York, United States)
Use comas to set off degrees. (e.g. Robert Alexander, Ph.D.-oh he hopes! :)
Use a comma/s to set of too when too is means also.(e.g. I like you, too!)
Use a comma/s to set of a direct quotation.
Use a semicolon to form a compound sentence when a conjunction such as and, but, or or
is not used.
Use a colon to introduce a list of items that ends a sentence. Never use a colon
immediately following a verb or a prepositions. Look for phrases like the following.
Use a hyphen to divide a word at the end of a line. Divides words accordingly to syllables.
Add hyphens to join parts of compound words and compound numbers.
Use quotation marks for the title of a short story, essay, poem, song, magazine or
newspaper article, or book chapter.
Use italics(underlining) to indentify the title of a book, film, television series, magazine,
or newspaper.
Use apostrophes when forming possessives of singular and plural nouns and of indefinite
pronouns. Do NOT use apostrophes in possessive pronouns. (e.g. dogs’, Kevin’s,
somebody’s, mine)
Use apostrophes in contractions. (e.g. didn’t)
Abbreviate a person’s title or any degrees following the name. (e.g. Dr. Seuss, Ph.D.)
Abbreviate certain organizations and government agencies, using capital letters with no
periods. (e.g. NASA)
A.M., P.M., B.C., and A.D.
Never abbreviate days and months in a sentence.
Spell out all numbers that can be written in one or two words in a sentence. Do NOT
spell out number that are more than two words. Spell out ordinal words like first.
For large numbers, spell out billion and million.
Use numerals to express dates, house numbers, amounts of money of more than two
words, and percentages but spell out the word percent.
