I wish I could give you a prescription to fill at your local pharmacist, one that would raise your grammar IQ automatically. But I can’t.So here are my suggestions. If you are only rusty, then I suggest you obtain a grammar book that would help you with various questions. Next, I would practice writing ten minutes a day without trying to edit the work. This is an important activity, maybe second to brushing your teeth; because the more one writes the better one writes. Finally, if your email program has a spellchecker function, I would definitely use it to review my communications before sending them.

What is the most current way to handle gender agreement? I learned that the masculine prevails, eg, “The student left his books at home.” Has it been changed to “his or her” and if so then how does one handle agreement issues, repeat “his” or “her” ??? Students want to use “their” but that can’t be right.
