MORE BAD PRO WRITING

ALAS! IT NEVER ENDS!

Example 1 (There are two errors in this one.)

"Her band of eight students were studying how to depict a group of trees."
Scott Webster photo caption, The Windsor Star, Friday, October 26, 2007.

Example 2 (There are two errors here also.)

"They call themselves North Preston's Finest (NPF) after the small Nova Scotia community northeast of Halifa were they hail from."
"Stay east, police tell N. S. girls", The Windsor Star, Friday, October 26, 2007.

MORE PARSING

Parse the following sentence using the rules set out in last week's parsing posts. There is one new concept in the example.

"The boy, Tom, in the back of the room constantly disrupted the the teacher with disgusting noises."

TODAY'S WORD

The word for today is "intrepid".

Define "intrepid" and use it in a sentence.
