my husband sent me the link to this parody book, the elements of f*cking style. i don’t know, the description did make me laugh, but i might have laughed more if grammar still doesn’t kind of freak me out a little bit. i think it always will. modifiers, participles, superlatives…oy.
i took a linguistics course in school, and the only thing i remember is how we spent an entire hour discussing the merits of “meander” versus “meander about”.
anyway, buy it here. noam chomsky, heh.
