Use an adjective, not an adverb, after a linking verb to describe the subject. The manager felt bad about the dependence on temporary workers. Karen seems distraught over the missing computer disk.

  22. Cautions for Using Not and Never Use not in a negative statement. Place not between the helping verb and the main verb in a sentence. Some employees do not treat all customers with respect. Use never as a stronger word than not to mean “at no time.” Being rude to a customer is never acceptable. Refrain from using never if not will suffice. PP 13-21

  23. Cautions for Using Contractions Use an apostrophe to take the place of the missing letter or letters in such words as aren’t doesn’t can’t isn’t wouldn’t hasn’t don’t He doesn’t anticipate rewriting the code of ethics for several years. She hasn’t missed a day of work this year. PP 13-22

  28. Adverb Clauses continued Use commas after introductory adverb clauses that precede independent clauses. Although he broke no laws, his actions were still unethical. Do not use commas to set aside adverb clauses that follow independent clauses. Plan to arrive 10 minutes before the meeting begins. We will start the meeting after serving refreshments. PP 13-25b

  30. Good/Well Use good as an adjective. Making ethical choices is often more than being a good person. Use well as an adverb. The new code of ethics has worked very well during the past year. Use well as an adjective in reference to the state of someone’s health. Although Anna was not well, she stayed at work long enough to complete writing the payroll checks. PP 13-27

  35. Sometime/Sometimes/Some Time continued Use some time as a phrase in which the adjective some modifies the noun time. Some time designates an “amount of time.” The revision of the ethics policy will take sometime. PP 13-30b
