« They or Them? | Main | The Apostrophe in Possessives »



Thanks for your elucidation.

I must either
convince my client to quit correcting my copy
resolve myself to have poor grammar on the website.

Kindest Regards,


Ronnie Roach

I would agree - the second sentence is correct. You could also add sightseeing, surfing and kiteboarding to the list.


In the interest of utter parallelism, I probably should hve gone with "golfing on eight championship courses." It's one word less economical, but it preserves the litany of gerunds.
