Other Stuff I Read

Carol Saller’s series on quoting well (series, quoting, and well link to the 3 parts).

Geoffrey Pullum on the use of “they” in pronoun agreement. While I agree with Pullum’s argument about usage being the best guide, the hyper-corrective English major in me cringes. After all, I still derive great satisfaction in distinguishing between toward and towards, though the distinction I make is really arbitrary.
