In a previous article, I discussed to, too, and two; there, their and they’re; and the difference between affect and effect. Here I will discuss other, just as common, English mistakes that can be easily caught when you are self-editing your work. If you catch these errors, your work will be cleaner, correctly reflecting your professionalism and will help form a good first impression on your readers.
I am not a Bible scholar nor have any knowledge of Hebrew. But, did you notice the ‘AH’ that the Lord added to both their names? I am convinced that God has a fantastic sense of humor and, reading it in English, I would like to think he said to Abraham and Sarah: ‘Do you get what I’ve been trying to tell you for years? Now just keep speaking it until it becomes an AHA revelation down in your heart.’ Guess what happened! Every time they called each other, or their many servants addressed them, they didn’t merely turn their heads in response to hearing their name any more! They heard God’s prophetic Word over their lives!

Princeton was founded in 1746 in order to train religious ministers which is why their school symbol has a religious touch. The crest has latin words inscribed in it ‘Dei Sub Numine Viget’, which means ‘Under God’s power she flourishes’.

quotes in latin Another historical finding, or what the patient relates to me, is the fact that they awoke with it in the morning after sleeping with the air conditioner or cold air blowing in the room in which they were sleeping. Often times as well, you may have just finished having a cold, or flu virus. Lastly, trauma such as a motor vehicle accident may cause a Torticollis as well.
Ivan is an engineer from Russia. He is very well educated and has a fine mind. There is not much about ‘English’ grammar that Ivan has not been taught. Truth be told, he knows more grammar than most English teachers, but he is reluctant to speak, even when he knows the answer. Although he was the best candidate for promotion in his job, Ivan kept getting passed over because of his spoken English. His company paid his tuition for a college speaking course as a last-ditch attempt to get the best value out of this otherwise fantastic employee.
