OMG...half of these explanations are misspelled, but the first explanation was on target. He may have learned this in second (and by the way bravo to you for remembering this rule), however they no longer teach this in school, as well as sentence structure and definition. When my child speaks to some of his peers in school they at times look at him as if he is speaking a foreign language, unless he ends a sentence with a preposition "where you at" or uses pronouns incorrectly "me and him" instead of "he and I" . Oh well, just the normal everyday dumb-down the education to save money syndrome. One day our grandchildren's generation will be speaking an entirely new language made exclusively out of slang words we use today. LOL

Yes, but the effect of knowing this doesn't affect me much. Can we do "lay" and "lie" next?

So, next up, the difference between 'effective disorder' and 'affective disorder'.
