The quiz returns with five sentences I have encountered in print. Today’s quiz is all about word choices. Click on the question mark icon or here to begin. Have fun and leave a comment if you wish.
By the way, we N&O bloggers get a report each month with our rankings by number of page views. Triangle Grammar Guide ranks near the middle — far behind the sports and politics blogs and Sue Stock’s useful Taking Stock blog, but with a respectable number of hits each month. Thank you for coming to this blog and for the notes and comments.
UPDATE (3/28/08): After you take the quiz, be sure to come back to the blog and read the comments that have been added to the post. A couple of smart readers have challenged a couple of the sentences on the quiz.
