    I had a prof in grad school who would deduct points if you got the verb wrong with data and criteria.

    Data are. Datum is.

    I actually wrote a WP macro for "a is" to search for occurrences to eliminate those problems.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    I'm all for using the right words, I just couldn't care less in identifying a verb, noun, pronoun, adjective, adverb, or a participle.....especially if it's dangling.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.
