Recently I’ve been fielding questions from students in a World Civilization course I teach. Some of students are shocked that I expect them to communicate cogently, including avoiding spelling and grammar errors. One student, not learning the lesson about cogent communication, complained, “This is a History course, not an English course.” I don’t think that student is getting much value out of his tuition. I’m not even sure he is aware that he is in a World Civilization course, not a History course or an English course.
But I digress.
OK, let’s try this grammar experiment.
Upon seeing the forbidding deserts of the great Salt Lake Valley, what did Brigham Young say?
It is enough. This is the right place. Drive on!
It is enough. This is the right place? Drive on!
Which statement do you think is correct?
