  • Thank you for all the likes recently! I'm glad people are enjoying it and sharing it!

    The pdf of the slideshow is available for download. I just have one request: if you do use it in a class at all - such as introduction to linguistics - can you let me know?

  • Grammar Nazi & proud! but, I don't subscribe to that hypocritical manual to which the masses subscribe... the one which propogated the passive voice in English as being improper.
    to sympathise with the language hippy statement, that book is the man, and does nothing but hold you and proper language down.

  • Thanks for all the favourites, tweets, comments, shares, and so on! I've got a 'So you know a research student' brewing so if you have any questions you're sick of being asked, or questions you wish someone would ask, or particularly snappy ways of replying to said annoying questions, let me know.
