Grammarphobia — "Grammar, etymology, usage, and more"

Woe-Is-I-Japanese1

Ms. Sterzinger, you can relax now, everything's under control.

Everyone else, lots to see here, don't move on but instead take a minute or three to spruce up your usage.

Can you say "Spruce up your usage" three times fast?"

'Cause I sure can't.

But I digress.

"Between them, Patricia T. O'Conner and Stewart Kellerman have written five books about the English language."

That's plenty good enough for me and ought to be good enough for you too.

Up top, the cover of the Japanese edition of "Woe Is I: The Grammarphobe’s Guide to Better English in Plain English," nearly a half a million copies of which have been sold, not all of them in English.
