Grammar for the Week
Appositive - a word or group of words that follows a noun to identify or explain it.
Example: Her reign, lasting 22 years, was successful.
Commas set off a nonrestrictive element that makes sense.
Example: Hatshepsut, unlike Egyptian royal women before her, ruled as a pharaoh.
Parentheses set off a parenthetical element that shows a break in though.
Example: She was a princess before she declared herself pharaoh (king of Egypt).
