A Riotous Good Time with Ellen Jovin of the Grammar Table
The delightful Ellen Jovin of the Grammar Table (you may have seen her sitting on the street answering grammar questions in your city) joined me to talk about her new book, "Rebel with a Clause," what possessed her to set up the Grammar Table in the first place, why Twitter is vastly better than Facebook for doing language polls, and more.
Ripe. Lede. Prevent. Awesome. Fulsome. MacGuffin. Daisy.
It's time for our quarterly listener question extravaganza! I answer your questions about the words "ripe," "lede," "prevent," "awesome," and "fulsome" and share some knowledge about MacGuffins and the drink known as a daisy.
Why Nobody Says 'You're Welcome' Anymore. Whose. Chimichanga.
Code-Switching. Mignon Snaps Over Numbers. Foomp.
The numbers sections of style books finally pushed me over the edge, and I have some stories you won't believe! We also talk about how cool code-switching is.
Favourite Grammar Podcast
In this podcast Mignon Fogerty talks about writing, history, rules and cool stuff (c)
Not a day goes by that I don’t listen to at least one episode of the podcast 🤍 I highly recommend this for both native and non-native speakers, writers and readers, and literally anyone interested in the English language. My favourite part of the show is the familects (a blend of the words ‘family’ and ‘dialect’) :)
Thank you, Mignon! Keep up the great work and lots of love from Katy, Russia
This is amazing podcast!
I love this podcast! It often brings in very interesting topics explaining the words and expressions from historical point with scientific approach gathering data from many sources. Wonderful example is the geek 676 - The Language of 'Game of Thrones' episode describing all those languages (Tongues) used in the show. You can listen to it commuting or read the text on the web site on your choice!
Many thanks to you for the amazing work, GrammarGirl!
