I just realized that I never introduced myself.
I’m Gary McCarty, a semi-retired curmudgeon who lives in the Los Angeles area. I have various degrees, two in U.S. history and one in journalism, and I for many years taught lower division courses for the University of Phoenix and American Intercontinental University while also consulting on Web projects. I now work in full-time cyber and print editing and publishing.
Anyway, this site will hopefully (now there’s a meaningless word) form the background for a book on English usage that will bear the same name*.
Please join in here to discuss whatever issue pertaining to English usage that you can think of or care about. Just don’t ever end a sentence with a preposition. LOL
* Note from long ago: I discovered that some doofus, or doofae, stole my idea and has written a book entitled Grammar Sucks; thus I changed my URL to grammarsource while retaining ownership of grammarsucks. However, this book — if it still exists — could never have the wit or insight of anything I write, so I will come out with my own book of the same name and we can have duelling Grammar Suckses (the plural doesn’t seem too appropriate, does it?)
