Hi chums,

I've had an interesting day today discovering just how different education
in English can be (or perhaps how different people remember different parts
of it.).

The discussion was on which words are not allowed after a full stop
(period). The range of allowable and non allowable was amazing. What rules
do you guys apply and what is the rule called?

>From my own memory/education, I never use And, As, But, Because. I'm sure
there are more but I can't recall them at the moment.

Any advice will be good.

Thanks all,

Mark Emson
