Happy National Grammar Day! How did you celebrate?
I re-read my favorite grammar article on the Internet: The story of the Alot monster. If you are anything like me, and cannot stand the misuse of words like your, you’re, a lot, all right, their, they’re, there — you know, the usual suspects scattered throughout semi-coherent Facebook posts — then you’ll love this article. It’s absolutely hilarious and very clever. It helps bring a some peace of mind to an obsessive editor.
Enjoy! And a very happy Grammar Day to you, my AP Style-loving friends.
