Grammar Pet Peeves

by Nolan R

Do randomly placed apostrophes get under your skin?  Does it drive you crazy when someone uses a word that’s not really a word?  Would the phrase All “Natural” on a sign make you a bit uncertain?  If so, then check out the following blogs.  They’re a great place to commiserate with others for grammar transgressions–and you can even send in your own bad grammar finds!

If you’d like some tips on improving your grammar, check out Doc Durden’s Guide to Good Grammar, About.com’s Grammar & Composition Archive, or go straight to the Grammar Girl herself.

I was super excited to see Grammar Girl when she visited the library a few months ago. I was also shocked at all the people who showed up to hear her speak. But, if you can make grammar entertaining, you should be able to pack the house like a rockstar.

Grammar pet peeves bug me, but so do pronunciation pet peeves. Check out these Top 40 Pronunciation Pet Peeves, but warning… you may cringe on a few that you mispronounce.
