Do you ever wonder which you should use, E.G. or I.E.? I always thought they could be used interchangeably. Actually they can't. I.E. stands for "that is" or "in other words" while E.G. means "for example".
If you have any grammar questions but are afraid to ask, most likely you can find it in Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips. You can also look for tips on Mignon's website and she even has an open invitation for people to email her with questions.
I checked this book out from the library but I am going to purchase a copy to have on hand. This book is indispensable!
When I first saw the grammar girl series I grabbed a few at once and this is one of the books I grabbed. This book is great and has helped me to understand and use these tips in my daily life and writing.
I say, keep 'em coming, Grammar Girl!
