Which vs. That

I confess that I didn’t know the difference between Which and That.  Heck, I didn’t even know there was a difference, but thanks to this Writer’s Digest blog article, I think I have a handle on it: http://www.writersdigest.com/online-editor/which-vs-that?et_mid=572893&rid=3023271

  1. Thank you for the link. I always thought that we needed to be careful using the word ‘That’ along with the ly endings. I finished a great book last week and I noticed a lot of ly’s, which took me by suprise. So, I will read and learn.

  2. Jeanette, Even though I’m an English major, I’m unclear about some grammar and punctuation rules… Ah, I’m fond of lys so I have to be careful when using them.

  3. I know about that. ly’s seem to really ad emotion to the sentence. I’ve had to change a lot of them in my book, but did keep a small few. And I’m unclear about a lot of rules, so I just type and had a great critique group that helps me out.

    • I’m very fond of adverbs, and they add a lot to books I read so I say–Go for it! But carefully. Having others read and critique your work is good ’cause you do miss things, but beware of those who follow rules fanatically. I think there’s a saying that you have to know the rules so you know when to break them…

  4. We can all use refresher courses and learning tools. I have a punctuation ebook on my computer that I need to look at again. Here’s the link (or URL) in case you’re interested: http://www.amazon.com/Punctuation-ebook/dp/B006UUSIVC/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1344479147&sr=1-1&keywords=G.+Miki+Hayden

  5. Thank you a bunch. I definitely will need it

  6. I saw this on WD, but got busy and forgot to read it. Thanks for the reminder – very informative! 🙂

  7. I think we all need reminders! For punctuation, etc. And I used which in a post this morning so I was grateful to know which was which. (Heh, heh.)
