Thursday's Grammar Tip

Do you ever have to stop and think whether it's hear, hear or here, here when you want to add an exclamation of agreement to someone's statement? I admit, I do on occasion. The correct term is hear, hear. How to remember...It's a derivative of  Hear him. Hear him.

  1. That's another movie on my to-watch list.

    I've never used that phrase before, so that would confuse me.

    1. It's an older term.
      Once you see the movie, let me know if you like it.

  4. hear, hear...hear as in listening to what is said...reminds me of when someone does a roll call and you say here...then you get the one person who will say present..haha..I am not sure why that came to mind. Have a good day!

  8. Love the movies!! Can't wait to see the next one!

    I didn't know "hear him" is the origin of that expression. That actually really does help me remember! Thank you :)

    1. Hi Liz, I've enjoyed the movies and loved the books, but I'm afraid this last one is going to be pretty dark. I'm still going to see it of course:)
      Glad the hear him helped. Hopefully, I'll remember it too:)

  9. For some reason I have yet to see these films. The premise of the film, for me, feels ugly but I know I have not given it a chance. So Hear, Hear! to when I actually watch it:) I probably got the commas and all that wrong...oh well

    1. Hey Birgit,
      I wouldn't say its ugly, but it is dark.
      If you ever do watch it, let me know what you think.
