Wonderful! You totally deserve recognition. I personally learn every time I read your blog and I appreciate it.

Stephen T. McCarthy said...

Cool! You're almost kinda like a celebrity. (I enjoyed the article. Read the whole thing in a single setting, too!)

I don't even know how to use Spell-Check, so I'm FORCED to... "Look it up, Stephen!!!" And I'm sure I get it etched into my mind that way... eventually.

When I was very young, I was an AWFUL speller. But I eventually became so addicted to reading that over time I developed into a... semi-awful speller.

I jest. Actually, I'm now a fairly decent speller. It's spilling that's a problem for me now (I can't hold my liquor).

I can still remember when I was very young, the words "there", "their", and "they're" gave me terrible FITS. Then one day - BINGO! - it all made sense. I guess theirs plenty to be said for reading!

Congratulations! All my co-workers know that orthography and proofreading are my super powers, so I appreciate all who crusade for better communication. I like your approach, too, starting with the basics and not assuming someone knows a compound adjective from a transitive verb. Enjoyed the article!

As one of the most egregious and annoying grammatical errors, I try to avoid the dangling participle.

Loved the article in the Register, which brought me here. All I can say is dang, you funny! I look forward to more posts and maybe an old dog like me can learn a grammar trick or two. Lord knows I can use all the help I can get.

Congratulations, Jenny. That was awesome. I apologize for missing this when it came out. My blog post tomorrow morning will explain where I have been hiding.
