Opus Grammar Tips

Monthly Grammar Tips: August 2016

Opus is a full-service marketing agency. As such, we consider each and every member of the Opus team to have a direct hand in marketing. Every point of contact with customers, prospects, and partners presents an opportunity to further our brand. We take pride in the quantity and quality of our communication—no matter the medium—which makes it even more important for our writing to be strong and free of errors. To that end, Opus sends out weekly “Friday Grammar Notes” with the aim of raising the bar of the written word across the entire agency. Our notes should provide utility to everyone, whether you’re a fledgling scribbler or a confirmed word nerd. 

This month we take a look at Grammy-worthy grammar mistakes, shed some light on shade-throwing gender designations, and share our point of view on prioritizing the reader’s perspective.

Opus Grammar Tips

Monthly Grammar Tips: July 2016

Building a brand depends on every point of contact that each employee has with customers, prospects, and partners. And despite being experts within respective disciplines, everyone is still occasionally bedeviled by a common high school nemesis: GRAMMAR! To help with the challenge, Opus sends out weekly “Friday Grammar Notes,” addressing misspellings, misuses, and misnomers in everyday communication. This quickly became the source of much dialogue around the proverbial water cooler, so we decided to make it a recurring feature on our blog. We hope you find it as useful as we do!

This month we cleared up the confusion about that, which, and who, were positively consumed by possessive contractions, were confused at least half the time by semi- and bi-, tried to put an end to try and, and gave four terms related to the word “for” what for.
