Mrs.B-Archive-07-08-2008

MRS.
BLUEZETTES GRAMMAR YAMMER


"A PBS mind in an MTV world."

All right is two words;
"alright" is non-standard.
But Mrs. B wants you to take a look at these "a"-words that
work both ways, as one word or two.

All ready means completely ready.

~She has her series on breast feeding all
ready.

Already means by this time or
before.

~The crew had already left.

All together means everyone
gathered.

~The news director brought the producers all
together
to discuss sweeps.

Altogether means entirely.

~Were not altogether sure we
should have run that story, considering all the negative viewer
response.

Awhile is an adverb.
It can modify a verb (in this case "took"), but it cant be
the object of a preposition.

~It took awhile, but we eventually
made a decision.

A while is made up of an article
(a) and the noun "while," so it can be the object of a
preposition, in this case "for."

~Any manager will wait for a while for
you to get up to speed on a new job.
