  • I don’t usually comment on my own posts, but…Stan Carey (in his Twitter chat about Real Grammar: @StanCarey #realgrammar) mentions an edict issued by UK Minister of Justice Michael Gove, instructing his officials on good grammar. His rules include not starting a sentence with However (see my post)! But David Crystal has demolished this ridiculous “rule” in a masterly post, here.

  • Thanks for the Real Grammar blog and thanks for this brilliant l post on misguided prescriptivism that, as you rightly point out, goes unchallenged and is, unfortunately, kept up by English teachers and journalists alike.

    I do really enjoy reading your articles so well done and I’ll be looking forward to reading them again in September.

    Keep it up!
