Makaʻala Moments #3

I brought my drug sniffing dog Odell, to the dance on friday, he didn’t find any drugs, but managed to sniff out two pieces of pizza and a bag of doritos. (6)

Answer:

1. As a compound adjective (two words working together to describe a noun), “drug-sniffing” should be hyphenated.

2. “Odell” is an appositive, a noun or noun phrase modifying another noun. It can be either essential and have no commas or non-essential and be separated from the sentence by commas on both ends.

3. “Friday” is a proper noun and should be capitalized.

4. We cannot separate two independent clauses with a comma; we must use a period or semicolon.

5. There should be no comma between “drugs” and “but” separating the compound predicate “did find” and “managed.”

6.“Doritos” is a proper noun and should be capitalized.

Makaʻala Moments #2

If I remember right, our marriage vows were a quote either from The Kamehameha Schools Kapalama 2010-2011 High School Student/Parent Handbook or Sophocle’s Oedipus Rex. (5)

Mistakes:

1. The adjective “right” should be the adverb “correctly.”

2. “quote” is a verb; we’re looking for the noun “quotation.”

3. Both The Kamehameha Schools Kapalama Campus 2010-2011 High School Student/Parent Handbook and Oedipus Rex, as a book and play, respectively, should be underlined or italicized.

4. Our sentence lacks parallel structure: with a correlative conjunction such as “either. . . or,” whatever follows the first part must follow the second, in this case, the two literary works.

5. The possessive of “Sophocles” is “Sophocles’” or “Sophocles’s.”

6. We should, of course, remove “Campus” from the title of the handbook. Apparently, we aren’t one anymore.
A correct version might read:

If I remember correctly, our marriage vows were a quotation from either The Kamehameha Schools Kapalama Campus 2010-2011 High School Student/Parent Handbook or Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex.
