What Is a Preposition?

People use prepositions every day. In spite of their regular use, however, they are often misused and misunderstood, especially by those whose first language is not English. Today, we’re going to learn the basic functions and purposes of prepositions, as well as how to use them (especially in an academic setting). What is a Preposition?

Capitalizing Religions and Religious Holidays

Understanding religious capitalization rules can be difficult so we're here to help. Below we'll break down the rules for the names of religions, holy books, and people who practice a religion.

However, bible can also be used as a regular noun so you can refer to a "fisherman's bible" in lowercase for example. In general, if you are referring to a specific religious book,...
