|Meet Miss Grammers|
The Naughty Librarian
Think of me as a super-hero and my super power is explaining arcane rules of grammar in a clear and concise way.
Check out Miss Grammers' first article--The Naughty Grammarian: Affect or Effect and her second article The Naughty Grammarian: Is it "Fewer" or "Less"
"The Elements of Style" is an old favorite. It was first published William Strunk in 1918. In 1959, E. B. White became a co-author and the book was expanded. The latest edition, the fourth edition, was published in 1999 with a forward by Roger Angell. Everyone should own a copy.
7/25/14: Update: Jon Stewart misused "fewer/less" last night. Follow the link to learn more. Miss Grammers is pleased to learn that her advice is indeed needed.
Update: New posts from the Naughty Grammarian.
