First, we will list the basics of my thesis about the future. With a thesis on the action of carbon monoxide on the blood. In the later editions of this essay the thesis is elaborated with greater detail. If the writer of the Gospel were simply inventing his facts, they would be no proof of his thesis John xx.
I was taught that commas were placed when you feel like taking a breath mostly wrong and semi colons were irrelevant so wrong. Other parts of my language knowledge are thin and I still cannot name any part of a sentence with certainty.

Getting through two theses with a white knuckled grip on what little grammar I knew was a nightmare, but instructive. I had to re-learn, pretty much from scratch, many of the technicalities. My poor supervisors had to struggle with me and I thank them from the bottom of my grammar challenged heart.
My students quickly realise they can equal or exceed me with little effort. My approach to teaching writing is deeply informed by my own struggles. So I developed tools for myself using advice I found in books. I share these tools with PhD students in my workshops and, over the years, their feedback has helped me improve them.
A couple of months ago my friend Margaret Kammel, who is a high school teacher and bloggerread my ebook and discovered some of my tools. These are formatted A4 sheets with exercises and information for teachers to use in class.

It would be wonderful, if you do this, if you would send me the revised list so I can add it as a variation.
Share the love I say! Kamler and Thomson offer his classification scheme in five parts: I agree, we prefer, unfortunately, hopefully etc, as well as puncuation: I, we, our, my, mine etc. I hope this BLM series will help if you have a supervisor like this.
Luckily many supervisors ARE skilled at grammar and helping students to write. Of course, I had to look up what a conjunctive adverb was on wikipedia first! So what about you? Do you have grammar problems like me?
Or do you have resources to share — sites, worksheets or books which have helped?He may point to a particular sentence that he thinks is his thesis, giving you a very good place to start.
