    now
    first 2 WORDS
    1
    AM/PM

    [frame="1 80"][grade="FF4500 4B0082 0000FF 000000 F4A460"][grade="FF4500 4B0082 0000FF 000000 F4A460"]AM” stands for the Latin phrase Ante Meridiem —which means “before noon”—and “PM” stands for Post Meridiem : “after noon.” Although digital clocks routinely label noon “12:00 PM” you should avoid this expression not only because it is incorrect, but because many people will imagine you are talking about midnight instead. The same goes for “12:00 AM.” Just say or write “noon” or “midnight” when you mean those precise times.

    It is now rare to see periods placed after these abbreviations: “A.M.” , but in formal writing it is still preferable to capitalize them, though the lower-case “am” and “pm” are now so popular they are not likely to get you into trouble.

    Occasionally computer programs encourage you to write “AM” and “PM” without a space before them, but others will misread your data if you omit the space. The nonstandard habit of omitting the space is spreading rapidly, and should be avoided in formal writing.

    yes brother i meant to say that
    thank you so much for correcting that to me
    ;)

    yeah now will go to other words ..
    common errors in english

    ABOUT***

    This isn’t about you.” What a great rebuke! But conservatives sniff at this sort of abstract use of “about,” as in “I’m all about good taste” or “successful truffle-making is about temperature control” ; so it’s better to avoid it in very formal English


    ACCESS***

    Access” is one of many nouns that’s been turned into a verb in recent years. Conservatives object to phrases like “you can access your account online.” Substitute “use,” “reach,” or “get access to” if you want to please them

    Hello Asseeb

    Ok .. let's start correcting errors

    Sorry but I will start with your topic title
    "LET US START LEARN"
    In English, you can't have two verbs following each other
    unless the second verb has a suffix of 'ing.' Other than that, you
    would have to add "to" in between the two verbs
    So, you would have either one of the following forms:
    "LET US START LEARNING" OR "LET US START TO LEARN"

    However, you can't add 'ing' to all verbs. We mostly add it to
    verbs following verbs such as LOVE, LIKE, ENJOY ETC... and
    in this case, it worked also. But, you can always add 'TO' between verbs

    I hope I made sense
    my regards

    TK

    brother T_K
    its really very kind of you
    and thank you for correcting my errors
    please if any more just tell me
    i want only to learn from you and all my friends



    [grade="00008B FF1493 2E8B57 4B0082"]so dear friends
    our 2 words for today are
    AFFECT/EFFECT
    [/grade]


    [grade="FF4500 4B0082 0000FF 000000 F4A460"]There are four distinct words here. When “affect” is accented on the final syllable (a-FECT), it is a verb meaning “have an influence on”: “The million-dollar donation from the industrialist did not affect my vote against the Clean Air Act.” A much rarer meaning is indicated when the word is accented on the first syllable (AFF-ect), meaning “emotion.” In this case the word is used mostly by psychiatrists and social scientists— people who normally know how to spell it. The real problem arises when people confuse the first spelling with the second: “effect.” This too can be two different words. The more common one is a noun: “When I left the stove on, the effect was that the house filled with smoke.” When you affect a situation, you have an effect on it. The less common is a verb meaning “to create“: “I’m trying to effect a change in the way we purchase widgets.” No wonder people are confused. Note especially that the proper expression is not “take affect” but “take effect”—become effective. Hey, nobody ever said English was logical: just memorize it and get on with your life[/grade]

    with all my love to all

    dear brother ..you are welcome
    and do reamember that you are my brother
    and really iam so proud that i have brother like u and other
    brother thank you so much
    and keep on touch please


    yes we will go a head
    in some new common errore s

    yes

    ALMOST **

    [grade="FF4500 4B0082 0000FF 000000 F4A460"]Like “only,” “almost” must come immediately before the word or phrase it modifies: “She almost gave a million dollars to the museum” means something quite different from “She gave almost a million dollars to the museum.” Right? So you shouldn’t write, “There was almost a riotous reaction when the will was read” when what you mean is “There was an almost riotous reaction[/grade].”

    A LOT ** & ALOT

    [grade="FF4500 4B0082 0000FF 000000 F4A460"]Perhaps this common spelling error began because there does exist in English a word spelled “allot” which is a verb meaning to apportion or grant. The correct form, with “a” and “lot” separated by a space is perhaps not often encountered in print because formal writers usually use other expressions such as “a great deal,” “often,” etc. If you can’t remember the rule, just remind yourself that just as you wouldn’t write “alittle” you shouldn’t write “alot.”[/grade]

    you rs

    welcoming dear
    and hope really that my topic is nice for you
    and for all
    yes
    today our new words are
    [/grade]

    ANGEL/ANGLE

    People who want to write about winged beings from Heaven often miscall them “angles.” A triangle has three angles. The Heavenly Host is made of angels. Just remember the adjectival form: “angelic.” If you pronounce it aloud you’ll be reminded that the E comes before the L. ALRIGHT
    &
    ALL RIGHT


    The correct form of this phrase has become so rare in the popular press that many readers have probably never noticed that it is actually two words. But if you want to avoid irritating traditionalists you’d better tell them that you feel “all right” rather than “alright.”

    with all my love
