some examples about prescriptive grammar usage

Never split infinitives e.g. *to boldly go

Never use double negatives e.g. *I can't get no satisfaction.

Never end a sentence with a preposition e.g., *This is the topic I will be writing my paper on.

Never use "me" after "than" e.g., *She is taller than me.
