The “Backyard” Gang Met in the “Back Yard”


It’s summer, and that means barbecues, pool parties and other fun behind houses.

So, remember that back yard or backyard can be the noun referring to the place to the rear of the house but still on the same property, where much of the fun takes place.

Still, why use two words when one will do? Some style books require it.

But if you want an adjective, it’s one word.

Now, excuse me while I attend to my steaks cooking on my backyard grill. My, do they smell good!

Until next time! Use the right words!
