    “I benefit” is correct, with emphasis on “I”. “It benefits me” is also correct, with emphasis on “benefits” and some on “it”. Which one you want to use depends on what exactly you want to communicate.

    “It benefit me” is grammatically incorrect – “benefit” is the form of the verb for every person except third person singular, and “it” is third person singular, hence “benefits” is the correct form of the verb. (Most English verbs are like this – one form of the verb is used for I, you, we, you all, and they, and another, often but not always just adding an ‘s’ to the end, for he/she/it.)

    While it could be argued the first sentence is correct, this assertion is flawed.

    Based on popular usage, the first sentence is incorrect. Generally, the singular “content” in this usage refers to digital subject matter, while the plural “contents” refers to items, substances, etc. that are contained within something else. Both example sentences do not appear to be referring to digital content but rather to the words and thoughts in the letter, which are abstract not concrete.

    Grammar is both prescriptive (regulated by reference books, style guides, committees, etc.), and descriptive (governed by popular usage). In this case, usage dictates this conclusion.

    Due to noun/verb disagreement, the second example, as others have pointed out, is also incorrect. So only a third variation, “The contents of the letter have never been revealed,” is truly correct.

    It is also not useful to suggest reordering the sentence as this is a matter of personal style and distracts from solving the grammatical issues posed by the questioner.

    Either can be used, although ‘benefited’ is more common in North America, ‘benefitted’ in Britain.

    The rule is, after a single vowel, we only double the final consonant before the suffixes ‘-ed’ and ‘-ing’ if the stress is on the final syllable, e.g. ‘occurred’ and ‘rebutting.’ If another syllable is stressed, we don’t double the final consonant, e.g. ‘opened’ and ‘slobbering.’ It has to do with spelling and long and short vowels, e.g. ‘hat’ versus ‘hate’ and ‘sit’ versus ‘site.’

    There are other exceptions to the stress & long/short vowel spelling rule, especially several verbs ending in ‘-el’ and ‘-al,’ where the ‘l’ is doubled in Britain and Canada, e.g. ‘cancelled,’ but not in the USA, e.g. ‘canceled.’ Yet another exception is ‘focussed,’ a common variant of ‘focused.’

    Some people might pronounce ‘benefitted’ such that it rhymes with ‘pitted,’ in which case the double-t spelling would be quite natural.

    The only sense that I can think of for in is after a negative, for example, There is no benefit in pursuing this further. If I were to express this same thought as a question, I would say: What is the benefit of pursuing this further? Generally, of is the usual choice.

    But English is never that simple. Have a look at the entry for benefit in the Oxford dictionary below, and you will find both benefit from and benefit to, both of which can have a gerund follow (the examples show nouns). The use with to is easier to select, since the recipient of the benefit is the object of to. With the other prepositions, the recipient is the subject of the sentence.

    Also, if you use benefit as a verb, you use by: You will benefit by reading more of my answers.

    Thanks for the A2A and I hope you reap the benefit of studying this answer.

    Even the example given both “benefit to having it” and “benefit of having it” could be gramatically correct depending on the context.

    “There is a benefit to having one insurance provider, being that you can combine your bills together.”


    “The benefit of having the same insurance provider is that you can combine your bills together.”

    Benefitted is past tense, so you cannot use it in a sentence with a future tense context.

    I’ll explain it so that you can remember the correct word to utilize in the future

    If the benefit is coming to someone FROM somewhere so use FROM:

    Shall I benefit from this?

    If the benefit is gained from you being IN it then use IN:

    Is there any benefit in doing this?

    If the benefit is participation based then use TO:

    Is there any benefit to this?

    If the benefit is for a plural group then there is no need for a preposition:

    Will this benefit us?

    Yes, talk is a regular verb and regular verbs when used in the past tense and past participle take the suffix -ed.

    In irregular verbs the word morphs into a different form in the past tense and past participle. Some examples include: eat-ate-eaten, go-went-gone, speak-spoke-spoken.

    In some cases, two of the forms will be the same and one will be different; in other cases all three will be the same (example: cut, which is the same in present, past and past participle).

    In a few cases there will be a difference between US and UK usage (example: the UK past participle of get is got, the same as the past tense, while the US past participle is gotten, and in US English got serves only as the simple past tense).

    Hello there INTJ A.

    Please remove the word “got” from your vocabulary immediately as it has no bearing on good English whatsoever. Other verbs replace it such as obtained, acquired, received, scored etc.

    I benefited from is correct.

    If followed by a verb gerund (exercising, avoiding contamination, buying fresh foods, etc.) they are equivalent. If a noun follows (vitamins, friendship, fresh air, purified water, etc.), only “from” will do.
