Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing (English)

07.16.07 | admin | In podcast, grammar, French, English

Deep within the podosphere resides a mysterious writer known only as Grammar Girl. Hailed as the defender of the sacred comma, orator of the mysterious grammar way, and deliverer of practical tips, she strives to restore fun to a desolate, imaginary world called Grammaria.

Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing is a podcast on English grammar. Advanced students of the English language, both native speakers and second language hackers, will find her dissection of borderline obscure English grammar topics interesting. Recent topics have included serial commas, regional dialects, and Spoonerisms. The discussion on mondegreens (phrases that have been misheard) and eggcorns (a homonym of acorn which explains the phenomena by example) should be interesting for anybody learning French which is full of eggcorns.
