Have you ever been labeled a "grammar nazi"? Can you make proper use of semicolons? Do you wince at poorly constructed sentences? Did the publication of the Chicago Manual of Style's 15th edition make you drool?

This is the tribe for you.

We may have preferences which slightly deviate from "established" English grammar (e.g. my placement of a question mark outside the quotation marks above), but we're quite happy to explain the reasoning behind them.

Come forth, and lament the decline of properly used language! ;) RSS Feed what is XML?
