The Earley Edition has officially moved to My dot com, that is. Thanks for joining me.

Wednesday, May 19, 2004

To clarify that... from the indominatable McIlwaine, grammarian extraordinaire, in the school of journalism's style guide:

that, which

These relative pronouns are not interchangeable and writers should not imagine that "which" is the literary form of "that". Use "that" in so-called restricted clauses.
The house that Jack built is still standing.
Use "which" (and commas) for unrestricted clauses.
The house, which Jack built, is still standing.
The first usage here is restricted to one particular house; the second is not restricted. In the second example, the clause between the commas simply adds extra information that is not essential to the sentence.

For further explanation, see
hmmmm, enough time-wasting...
