Instructions and Help about Where Form 2220 Respectively

Music hi my name is Kerry Thurber and I'm a quality control editor at Research Square today I will be talking about how and when to use respectively in a sentence researchers often record data from multiple time points concentrations treatments temperatures etc comparisons of these data often take the form of parallel lists to lists with the same number of items the items in the first list correspond to items in the second list in order the sentence often ends with the adverb respectively in English respectively means in precisely the order given sequentially you can think of a parallel list as a table in sentence form the average growth rate was to 4 at 8 grams per minute in the 20 25 and 30 degree treatments respectively however if the list is not parallel then we do not use respectively a longer way to write the previous sentence would be the average growth rate was 2 grams per minute for the 20-degree treatment 4 grams per minute for the 25-degree treatment and 8 grams per minute for the 30-degree treatment in this case respectively is not used as there is only one paired list rather than two parallel lists another example of one respectively would not be used is the average growth rate was 2 4 and 8 grams per minute for the 20 to 30 degree treatments in this case we may infer that the 2 and 8 grams per minute rates match the 20 and 30 degree treatments but this list is not parallel because we do not know the temperature value that matches with the 4 gram per minute rate punctuation is also important to remember with respectively if respectively is at the end of the set then it will be preceded by a comma if it is in the middle of a sentence then there will be a comma before and after the term sometimes respectively is confused with the term respectfully which means in a way that shows respect or separately which means at a time or not together we respectively deferred to the expert on this point is incorrect and should be replaced with we respectfully deferred to the expert on his point to one milliliter of filtrate three drops of reagent was added respectively is also incorrect to one milliliter of filtrate three drops of reagent was added separately Music aje how research breaks through
