You are looking to me for a comment. I am here looking for input. I wasn't that good in school. I'll do my best.... To join or combine. An addition. To include. I would venture a guess that it's always better to write add instead of ad. Unless you mean to abbreviate advertisment or advitisment. Thus ends todays, ask the guy with the GED lesson.
