Word War with Cac the Proofreader – Already or All ready?

Plaisted Publishing House

It’s WORD WAR time! Today I’m giving you a double dose of fun! ALLREADY vs. ALREADY. This is actually very simple.
ALL READY means exactly what it says: completely ready, or all prepared, all done.
Example: “I am ALL READY to eat dinner.”
ALREADY means to come before, prior to a specified time.
Example: “Dinner has already been served.”
TIP: If you can replace the word “ready” for “all ready” and the sentence still makes sense, use the two words.
Next: COULD OF vs. COULD HAVE.
COULD OF is actually incorrect usage of the English language. Due to the fact that many folks who speak the phrase omit the “h” when saying “could have,” it’s assumed the proper spelling would be COULD OF, simply because of how it comes out. ALWAYS use COULD HAVE.
And there you have it: two for one!
