Short Vowel Sound and Magic 'e'
"It's magic!"
We have the short vowel sounds: a, e, i, o, u

and the long vowel sounds: A, E, I, O, U

With some words, we add a 'magic e' to change
the previous vowel sound from short to long.
Punctuation
Showing us how to read a text.
Oxford Comma:
We had coffee, cheese and crackers and grapes.

Adding a comma after crackers makes it clear that cheese and crackers represents one dish. In cases like this, clarity demands the Oxford comma.

We had coffee, cheese and crackers, and grapes.

If something or someone is sufficiently identified, the description that follows is considered nonessential and should be surrounded by commas.

- The Founders Bridge, which spans the Connecticut River, is falling down.

- Freddy, who has a limp, was in an auto accident.

Incorrect: Jill who is my sister shut the door.
Correct: Jill, who is my sister, shut the door.

Incorrect: The man knowing it was late hurried home.
Correct: The man, knowing it was late, hurried home.

Be careful not to put a question mark at the end of an indirect question.
•The instructor asked the students what they were doing.
•I asked my sister if she had a date.
•I wonder if Cheney will run for vice president again.
•I wonder whether Cheney will run again.

And a bit of spelling.
