  1. i think i’m pretty good with all these… although i never did ‘get’ the dangling participant….

    here’s one i’ve never understood though: continuous versus continual.

    can you clarify oh wise one?

  2. “may” and “might’ are two terms that are often interchanged incorrectly.

    You may want to consider Hawaii for your next vacation verus you might… the first being a term of permission.

    You ‘might’ find this interesting (correct) versus ‘ you may find this interesting’. (incorrect)

    You may leave early (correct). You might leave early – also correct but interms of possibility not permission.
