Opus Grammar Tips

Monthly Grammar Tips: October 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 explore the principles of principals, extol the virtues of proper grammar to anyone and everyone who will listen, embrace the difference between accept and except, and get downright spooky with classic Halloween mix-ups

Opus Grammar Tips

Monthly Grammar Tips: September 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 held court on the difference between a marquis and a marquee, got a new lease on both tenets and tenants, spoke out about podiums and lecterns, begged you not to beg the question, and got a taste for palates, pallets, and palettes
