Grammar Girl tackles 101 troublesome words – chicagotribune.com

Congratulations to the talented and, as it turns out, super-cute Mignon Fogarty on the publication of her new book, “Grammar Girl’s 101 Troublesome Words You’ll Master in No Time”.

As usual, Fogarty’s explanations are clear, complete, entertaining — and disgustingly generous on questions of right and wrong:

“One the one hand, I think people should be careful about the words they use,” she says. “On the other hand, the book is sort of a warning to people who are out there correcting others all the time. Maybe the rules are not as clear and straightforward as you think.”

(Oh, Grammar Girl. Why have you forsaken me?!)
