Witch or Which or Sandwich?

Earlier in the week as I was grading my college comp I papers, I noticed a few mistakes with the witch and which. So, in honor of my college students, here’s your 5 Minute Grammar Lesson!

#1. A WITCH is a magical woman. A noun. She might ride a broom and wear a pointy hat. Or, she may have tattoos and like to knit. You never know. Which is why you might not want to judge and brings me to point #2.

#2. WHICH is an adjective or a pronoun. You generally want more information when you use WHICH. WHICH car did you buy? WHICH book did you read? WHICH witch did you see last night?


#3. Of course, just to utterly confuse you, English has a third type of wich – SANDWICH – notice, no t or extra h as found in #1 and #2. But doesn’t that look good? 😉

Unfortunately, these three words are NOT interchangeable. As with so many other things in English, they just have to be memorized. I highly suggest not getting them confused on formal papers for English teachers! 🙂

And that’s your 5 Minute Grammar Lesson! Enjoy!!

  1. It is so true about the short attention span, but just as equal is short on time. I'm sure everyone can agree on that. When writing my posts, I try to add a little humor to it. I think that's what draws me to other's posts.
  2. As for length, the key is balance. I don't mind a long post if it takes that to get the information across. I don't like long posts that ramble on an on about nothing. I also detest short post that say nothing, usually released just to keep up with their blog schedule to try to bring in readers. Both are huge time consumers. Kingdom Life & Blessings
