Grammar for the Month

           

‘This / this here’

 

Don’t use this unless you have the item with you!  For example:

I saw ‘this here’ alien in our garden last night     x      (always wrong)

I saw this alien in our garden last night  x   (No you didn’t because you haven’t got him/her/it with you!)

I saw an alien in our garden last night         (Correct and we all believe you!  What about those /them wee/we green men where/werethey there/ their  to/two/too?)
