Hi all,
It sounds like some of you may be interested in a great little book I
found that I use with my teacher education candidates (as they seem to
perpetuate langauge lore). Anyway, it is put out by Penguin and the title
is Grammar Snobs are Great Big Meanies: A Guide to Language for Fun and
Spite. The author is June Casagrande. It has great chapters like "Snobbery
Up With Which You Should Not Put,"Copulative Conjunctions: Hot Stuff for
the Truly Desperate," and "I'm Writing This While Nakes--The Oh-So-Steamy
Predicate Nominative."

"To do things for students that they can do for themselves is not
generosity but impatience." (Mina Shaughnessy)
