Ending a sentence with a preposition
I was told long ago that grammar/usage rules have changed and that now it is okay to end a sentence with a preposition. Is that true?
I learned that long ago, too, Randy. There has never been a hard and fast rule against it, but I usually try not to end a sentence with a preposition. Sometimes, the construction needed not to do it makes the sentence so awkward that it's best to just put the preposition on the end.
The taboo against it has eased greatly in recent years.
