    Arrow How about or What about

    How about or What about?


    Both can be used to make suggestions:
    • How about going to see a movie tonight?

    • What about going to see a movie tonight?
    Or, in the case of a non-suggestive question:
    • Is Mike going with you? How about Pete?
    • Is Mike going with you? What about Pete?

    • Have you finished cleaning your room? How about your homework?
    • Have you finished cleaning your room? What about your homework?
    So, use either and the earth won't open up and swallow you!

    Arrow Bad or Badly

    Bad or Badly?

    We use bad (an adjective) with linking verbs such as is, seems, feels, looks, or appears.
    Example:
    "I feel bad that I missed the concern."

    We use the adverb badly with action verbs.
    Example:
    "He smells badly."
    This sentence means he can't detect the smell of his friend's perfume, but "He smells bad" means he needs to shower and use deodorant.

    Arrow Continually or Continuously

    Continually or Continuously?

    Yes, there is a slight difference, although most people (and even many dictionaries) treat them the same.
    Continually means repeatedly, with breaks in between.
    Continuously means without interruption, in an unbroken stream.
    Example:
    Ali has to wind the cuckoo clock continually to keep it running continuously.
    (If it's important to emphasize the distinction, it's probably better to use periodically or intermittently instead of continually to describe something that starts and stops.)
    The same distinction, by the way, applies to continual and continuous, the adjective forms
