Things that make us [sic]

Hmmm… It’s National Grammar Day in the States. As one who regularly offends the rules of decent grammar and syntax I should probably keep quiet about this, but I do try to avoid splitting infinitives (and put commas in the wrong places). For our pendants, try perfect [or is that prefect? – ed] Bill Walsh’s take on the grammar crimes of the US Presidential election campaign. Blue pencil has some top tips on the Who/Whom dilemma. This guy gets gerund: it’s more than just an -ing word. Pedants of the world, do your worst enjoy. The day is yours!! Meantime, I promise to do my best always to keep a clear line between my its and my it’s. And endeavour never to put my infinites asunder.
