Makaʻala Moment #5

Ambrosia means food of the Gods but muffins, if our sales last week is any indication, tastes well enough for Kamehameha Students. (8)

1. Since “Ambrosia” is being defined, we should underline or italicize it.

2. We place the definition in quotation marks.

3. When one discusses many gods, the word “Gods” becomes a common noun, with a lower case “g.”

4. We need a comma after “gods” to separate the two independent clauses.

5. The plural subject “muffins” takes a plural predicate “taste.”

6. The plural subject “sales” takes a plural predicate “are.”

7. The predicate adjective “good” should replace the adverb “well.”

8. “Students” is a common noun, with a lower case “s.”

A corrected version might read

Ambrosia means “food of the gods,” but muffins, if our sales last week are any indication, taste good enough for Kamehameha students.
