This tutorial written over at wikihow.com is an absolutely amazingly clear lesson about how to use i.e. and e.g. correctly. It seems as though my school system never taught me about these two bad boys and life was too busy to bother so I always defaulted to ‘eg’.
Turns out I was wrong to do so and probably looked a bit un-edumacated.
So, enjoy their post and remember that it’s never too late to teach an old, mangey, stinky, street dog new tricks.
