A Sometimes Snarky Guide to English Usage, Grammar & Punctuation
A quick-reference, and, yes, sometimes snarky, guide to help you avoid the common pitfalls of English writing and speaking. Learn the difference between "fame" vs. "notoriety," "like" vs. "as," why it's OK to split an infinitive or even dangle your preposition, when to use a comma vs. a semicolon, and why speaking in "up-talk" makes you sound less than confident. Master the contents of this guide and you'll be well on your way to writing and speaking with a professional polish.
