Ref: Penny’s recent article about “4 features”:

“easy to use training tools” should be “easy-to-use training tools”

“An excellent tool for beginners and experts alike, browse or download. . .” (dangling phrase–make two sentences instead)

“2 minute approval tips” should be “Two-minute approval tips” (Don’t begin a sentence with a numeral)

“tuned-in” should be shortened to “tuned”

Gary –

As I’m sure you’re well aware, the rules of English grammar are often fuzzy at best, especially on issues of hyphenation, branded phrases and turns of phrase. I think it’s safe to say that most writers would contend that your suggestions are open to interpretation. Nonetheless, thanks for your thoughts – we’ll definitely be even more diligent of our grammar in future posts now that we know you’ll be watching.

Seriously?

While we all appreciate and expect a certain level of grammar especially from articles here on EzineArticles.com, I would suggest that many people simply skim for essence, gleaning the most important concepts.

Thank goodness EzineArticles.com accepts articles written in the way most of us speak and read. From what I understand, that’s about a grade 5/6 level.

Then again, I’m pretty happy eating fast food out of paper plates and Styrofoam cups. :)

Keeping it simple in Toronto,

Marc –

Rules of English grammar are not at all “fuzzy.” That is why they are called *rules*. Most people never bothered to learn the rules of grammar, so now they say such rules are unimportant.

Gary –

If only there was a definitive and official rule book for the English language. Truth is, the rules vary considerably between the many different sources as well as between English-speaking nations – it’s one of the reasons that it’s so difficult for non-English speaking people to learn the language. Here at EzineArticles, we are confronted almost daily with grammatical questions that require us to research proper word usage or sentence structure. What we often discover is that there is no consistent answer for many of these questions. One source will state one thing, while another source will state something different. Inevitably, we must be satisfied with simply choosing the “more” correct answer.

Once again, thanks for letting us know your thoughts. It drives us to be ever more vigilant in maintaining the highest possible level of quality in our writing. :-)

Hi Penny,
thanks for the new scratch pad feature in the interface – great for taking down notes!

Wanted to know if the inbox feature is also integrated in the new interface, since I couldn’t locate it?

Thanks!

Deepanjolie –

The Member Inbox feature is not currently available on the My.EzineArticles interface. It will potentially be implemented in the near future, but an exact determination has not yet been made. I would suggest that you click on the “Feedback” link in the bottom right-hand corner of the interface and let us know that it’s a feature you’d definitely like to see.

In the meantime, I would suggest that you use the “Notifications” function to get pertinent information on your account activity. You can view your notifications in the upper right-hand corner of the interface. To review your notifications settings, select Settings from your Member Name Dropdown Menu located on the top right corner of the page. Once there, select the Notifications tab. This is where you can select which notifications you would like to receive for your account.

Deepanjolie,

The concept of the member inbox is available but because the functionality changed, it appears to not exist. You will receive a notification in lieu of an email if you have your notifications turned on but if you don’t, it feels like you don’t have the option.

Through member feedback we understand that this is building confusion and will have an “inbox” for you in the next day or two. Thanks for keeping us busy and for your patience. :)

Penny,
Thanks for your prompt reply and for considering the “inbox” addition to the new interface – appreciate it!

Best,

Russ –

Articles should be written at the “grade 5/6 level”? I don’t think so. With modifiers and good sentence structures, English becomes a versatile, effective means for communicating complex ideas. When was the last time you heard a 5th grader express an intelligent thought?

Marc –

Please don’t think I’m picking on you, but I really must point out two errors in your Jan. 17 comments.

Your first sentence should have the verb *were,*, not *was.* You are stating something contrary to fact (in your view, at least); therefore the verb must be in the subjunctive mood. (If the moon *were* made of green cheese, intergalactic mice would be happy.)

In your second sentence you should’ve put a period after *nations* and started a new sentence with *It’s.*

P S – Ignore the unnecessary second comma in my comments (typo).

Gary –

I’ve got to thank you for giving me a good laugh. It would appear that even the best of us can experience errors in our writing! Even so, you’ve demonstrated your vast and superior knowledge of the English language. I salute you. If you’re not already employed as a proofreader or editor, I’d suggest that you consider one of those as a definite career possibility.

Gary Jacobsen writes:

Here’s something to think about: over 90 percent of English sentences are based on only six recurring patterns. Read “To Learn English, Study Its Bones” in EzineArticles.

Once a person masters these six sentence patterns, he or she can add modifiers at will to create interesting, meaningful sentences.

Gary, your points are well-taken. I think we should always strive for improvement.

Having said that, I spent 40 years teaching private music lessons, a job which required me to take complex symbols and concepts and make them not only understandable, but enjoyable as well. I could have flaunted my education by using words such as “rudimentary, facile, imcomplex, untroublesome”… however, my students loved the fact that I was able to speak on THEIR terms using clear, easy, simple language.

I made an entire career out of keeping it simple… because I had to. However, I never talked down to my students, constantly pointing out the error of their ways; rather, I started at their level and brought them up to mine. That’s an art!

As for “When was the last time I heard a 5th grader express an intelligent thought?” WOW! Have you been around kids lately? Although I’m retired from private music teaching now, I’m in my second marriage and blessed with an 8-year-old step-daughter (grade 3). She teaches me something every single day! Sure, young people may not be elegant, erudite and polished in their communication presentation, but that does NOT mean they don’t have anything intelligent to contribute to enrich our lives.
