How will we be able to tell?.

Since he is constantly in campaign mode, and since he uses the words “I” and “me” more often than the most narcissistic Hollywood actor, it is easy to confuse his official speeches with “personal announcements”.

Will Senator Reid be asked to keep control of the US Senate and assume control of the US House of Representatives?

Obamacrat Boehner may be asked to “spend more time with his family.”

Oh, yes, I first read it as “personal”. Well, it has to be something BIG, for him to make a special announcement. And/or he’s trying to drown out some other newsworthy news. Maybe Christie is joining the WH Staff? Carney leaving to train for jihads in Yemen? Sebelius finally had enough?

Which is it?

Choose Your Words
personal/ personnel

Choose the right word for each sentence:

XYZ Co. is letting go of personal/personnel at an alarming rate.

My personal/personnel files include notes on how to take over the world using just a red paperclip.

Match.com and other dating sites have eliminated the need to advertise in the personals/personnels.

The HR department kept James’ personal/personnel file updated with all the complaints about his work habits.

Personal and personnel can be confused if the writer is not diligent, especially as both can be used as a noun and an adjective. Let’s go through the quiz to uncover all four usages.

The first example could say that XYZ Co. is laying off employees or staff; the correct choice here is personnel, a plural noun. You wouldn’t have one personnel; you’d have many.

The second sentence calls for personal. Personal refers to something of a particular person’s, something done in person, something related to a person, and so on. My files belong to me; they are personal. They don’t have anything to do with my employer.

The third sentence refers to those ads placed in a newspaper by people looking for romance or wishing to send messages to others. Personals is the correct, if increasingly rare, choice.

In the final sentence, a personnel file is an employee file. Although the file is about one person and is somewhat private, it is limited to James’ work life at his current company; it is a file kept by the company about its employee.

To remember which word is which, try this: Personnel has two ns, just as a company has to have at least two employees to have personnel. Anything personal (one n) is about one individual.
