Those "Conjunctive Adverbs" Again Reading "Jibe," "Gibe," "Jive" -- and This Is Just the Beginning 1 minute Next Fractions
Much of my time is being consumed these days with my efforts to write my new book -- Word Pares, Pears, Pairs. I am determined to have it out by the end of January! Apropos of my new book, there was a question on Facebook this week about the word jibe versus jive and gibe. Jibe means "to be in accord" or "agree" as in ...It doesn't jibe with the figures I have. ...It doesn't jibe with the facts in the case. Jive is a kind of talk or dance; gibe means "to taunt" or "to jeer." You can read all about it in my new book. Are you excited to see it?? I am. Stay tuned. Happy punctuating! Margie
