Celebrate Good Times!

Happy National Grammar Day!

Today might be a good day for my annual reading of Strunk and White. Or for some high-fiber food (good for the colon). Or to check out what Grammar Girl has cooked up for us!

May your participles never dangle and may the word “myself” only be used when viewing one’s reflection in a mirror…or for intensity.

    only you, frume sarah.

    actually, there’s a program on npr: http://www.waywordradio.org/donate/ – which i heard when driving through wisconsin once and i thought of you! that day, they had a big discussion about “less” vs. “fewer” – just like your cartoon. if i remember correctly, they determined that “15 items or less” was generally accepted although purists would, of course, not agree.

    a very interesting show to add to the podcast list.
