Today my LA teacher said "I hope tippy all do good on the test". Seriously? She's a LANGUAGE ARTS teacher!

New to NF and to the group.

Is anyone else completely fascinated by the different ways a sentence can be put together and all the grammar workings? I work for a prof that analyzes how ESL students use grammar and I do the coding. It sounds tedious and boring, but I love it.

@swags it's grammar, not grammer

@Illy @Henry Thanks soooo much! I tried thesaurus.com but it didn't have enough (I needed 8 synonyms for each word). <3

@Izzy what about http://thesaurus.com/

@Izzy - subtract - deduct / multiply - erm, the best I can think of is 'factor by' or 'increase by a factor of'

Thanks @Henry! Can anyone help? I need synonyms for the words "subtract" and "multiply"...

@Izzy, Lynn Truss. She has a fantastic insight into the struggle for good grammar! (I expect it will be available on Amazon or suchlike)

@Henry Sounds good! Who's the author?
