Some Links

I've listed a few links. They look all jumbled to me on the side of the page, but I haven't figured out how to space them more evenly...yet. Maybe I never will. [Note: They're still not spaced the way I'd like, but I moved them to the bottom of the page.]

Some of the links are a bit academic (like the Language Log) but if you cruise around that one, you're going to find some really sharp and witty dialogue on grammar, usage, and probably a few surprises. Professor Pullum's rant about his copyeditor is very entertaining. It made the rounds of my copyediting email list.

I have a few more links to track down in my notes that are helpful for punctuation and grammar, with little quizzes for all the browners out there.
I'll post something on commas later tonight or tomorrow. Discretionary commas, to be exact.


  1. Funness! Thanks for the links. :D

  2. Thanks for the links! Great stuff.

  3. Thanks Sharon. I think one thing that would help is to put the titles in caps--then they stand out from the description. IE:

    LANGUAGE (guess what this one's about)

    You'll get the hang of blogger once you fool around with it a bit. :-)
