Overview

English is full of beauty and surprises, yet despite being the lingua franca of the globalization world, it has a reputation for being difficult to learn because its grammar has also so many quirks and contradictions. This also makes it "superdope," so it's time to get your geek on.  Did you know: "Terry loves yogurt" is an example of illeism; preposition stranding is a bogus rule; sometimes it's acceptable to begin a sentence with "but" or "and"; "Could you pass the salt?" is "whimperative"; it's OK to boldy split infinitives.  Many of us don't even know the basics, so not only does the  book reveal obscure grammar rules and bogus ones you can safely ignore, it's also a handy primer, so in the future you'll have no excuse for dangling a modifier or misplacing a semicolon.
