Grammar does not comprise a set of rules. My favorite definition of grammar: "The ability to make a sentence mean what I intend and nothing else." (I wish I could find the source of that again.)

In class, we won't always get to everything listed for a particular day; left-overs will be moved to the next day.

Upload files (I am working on this; hopefully, it will be ready later today! As long as this line is here, the function is NOT working yet.)
