English is full of beauty and surprises, yet despite being the lingua franca of the globalization world, it has a reputation for being difficult to learn because its grammar has also so many quirks and contradictions. Did you know: – “Terry loves yogurt” is an example of illeism – preposition stranding is a bogus rule – sometimes its acceptable to begin a sentence with “but” or “and” – “Could you pass the salt?” is “whimperative” – its OK to boldly split infinitives Many of us dont even know the basics, so not only does Grammar Geek reveal obscure grammar rules and bogus ones you can safely ignore, its also a handy primer, so in the future youll have no excuse for dangling a modifier or misplacing a semicolon.
