Grammar is tricky business, as one can rarely boldly go before one stutters into some archaic grammar rule. Luckily, Patricia O’Conner is on hand to set straight five basic myths of grammar (Mental Floss). These five myths are:
- Don’t split an infinitive.
- Don’t end a sentence with a preposition.
- And don’t start a sentence with a conjunction.
- None is always singular.
- Whose can only refer to people.
As is correctly pointed out, these rules are rather silly, so let’s do away with them, shall we? Onwards!
