Overview

English is full of beauty and surprises, yet despite being the lingua franca of the globalization world, it has a reputation for being difficult to learn because its grammar has also so many quirks and contradictions. Did you know: - Terry loves yogurt is an example of illeism - preposition stranding is a bogus rule - sometimes it's acceptable to begin a sentence with but or and - Could you pass the salt? is whimperative - it's OK to boldy split infinitives. Many of us don't even know the basics, so not only does GRAMMAR GEEK reveal obscure grammar rules and bogus ones you can safely ignore, it's also a handy primer, so in the future you'll have no excuse for dangling a modifier or misplacing a semicolon.
