Daughter of an English teacher, I'm constantly striving to quell my "grammar freak" tendencies as they tend to isolate me from some of my friends. I'm very happy to find a website like this where I can read and explore the English language, its origins and its trends, without fear of reprisal. So far, I love the tone and the content of the contributions here. I love to learn more about word origins, spelling variants, neologisms and the always-changing rules of punctuation, spelling, grammar and pronunciation.
