Thanks, Kelli, great tip.

Comment by LeAnne Law on September 16, 2013 at 21:13

Thanks, Kelli.  I hadn't heard that trick before. 

Comment by Stefanie Landa on September 16, 2013 at 20:27

Thanks.  I will start using that.

Stephanie -

If you put the word "quite" before the word "some time" and it makes sense, then it will be two words.  That's how I've always done it.

For example, "I go to the store quite sometime."  That doesn't make sense, so it would be one word "sometime."

"It took me quite some time to drive here."  That makes sense so it would be two words, "some time."

Hope that helps.

I've confused myself with using: sometime after or some time after. Can it be both depending on the sentence or always on or the other?

alls or all's ?

Comment by LeAnne Law on July 14, 2013 at 12:43

Could it be the name of a particular fire?  I found Tubac fire (Arizona).

Have you ever heard the word "hubach"?  It was said by a fireman talking about a hubach fire.

Or maybe short for deposited, and go with depo'd?

Comment by Alice Clark on July 11, 2013 at 15:47

If someone said soil was "depo'd" (phonetic) from the front to the backyard, would you think he was making an action word out of "depot" when he means "moved"?
What I did see was some soil that had been depot'd (?) to the backyard
