Grammar Girl: Quick & Dirty Tips

Fogarty, Mignon. “Grammar Girl: Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing.” http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/.

A twice-a-week podcast and blog on writing and style issues. Mignon Fogarty, a.k.a. the Grammar Girl, is one of the more sensible prescriptivists out there, although she has an unfortunate tendency to conflate style with grammar and often fails to grasp that different registers have different requirements. (e.g., She frequently criticizes news headlines, without realizing that headlines are a highly stylized form of writing that has its own rules.) If you’re into listening to podcasts, the audio version is worth the few minutes a week it takes to listen.
