    u r asking too general query, buddy!

    this site has plenty of downloadable material. use it.

    ask ur specific doubts. yes ur general queries ll also be answered ...

    but darn! i m out of town now.
    (my fav excuse Very Happy)
    somebody ll respond or wait for 4 days ... i ll return back to home.


    i recommend u to invest in good dictionary.

    I second that it is a general rule but then slight distinctions between em can be of great help in my quest ...
    I do have the dictionaries etc but then all i want is a list where in one can appreciate the differences between these word(s)
    Thanks

    Have you looked at the Spidey's Sentence Correction Notes? I believe it addresses some of the topics you are looking for...

    Best of luck!

    comprehensive bank!!?!!
    You want some notes on Conjunction? OK here i go.
    honestly i have not gone throught spedy's or Sahils notes..,, so i might be repeating the same stuff here.



    even though /although /though /however can be used to show the contrast between two sentences. or phrases(?) /clause/
    Though is more informal and used in spoken English;
    However, however is used in formal English.

    note its flexible though...the following examples follow general trend.
    eg.
    Although/ even though/ though i have internet connection at home i go to cybercafe.
    i have internet connection however/but i go to cybercafe.
    wrong sentence: although i have internet connection however i go to cybercafe.
