In Common: The SLC blog
Should of? Or is it should have? Me and Kate went shopping, or is it Kate and I? SLC English as Additional Language Peer, Jyot K, shares some of the common faux pas of English writing.
In these Lost in Translation posts you can expect to read about common words and phrases that result in interesting (and sometimes funny) translations when we try to explain them in English.
Contributions to this series come from across the SLC and we also welcome submissions from the wider university community.
Our second post comes from former Writing and Learning Peer Educator and frequent blog contributor, Deeya B., and highlights her mother tongue, Hindi.
Guest blogger Deeya B. returns with a Grammar Camp installment that explains the difference between chronology and relativity as approaches to academic writing. How does that relate to grammar, you ask? She will show you how these different approaches to writing give you clues for how you should be using verb tenses in your papers.
Check it out!

Here to finally complete the promised three part series on common expression errors, it is Apostrophe Angst!
