Communication Tip #62

Are you ready for a grammar challenge of which many people are aware?

Find the incorrect word in this sentence: You coming in early last night meant we could leave early too.

The compound subject is “coming in early” and it belongs to “you.” So, “you” needs to be possessive: “Your” coming in early…  More examples: “My” laughing is loud. “My” laughing with friends is even louder.” (Not “me” laughing with other people…)

Now, share this rule with your team members. Their wanting to learn it will surprise you.
