Elements of Style Rap
Do you correct silently people's grammar when you're speaking to them, or watching them on the Teev? If you're a member of the Grammar Police, then this is for you.
What are your pet grammar peeves? Does the split infinitive get to you, or is it the floating apostrophe? Personally, I hate it when myself is used instead of me, as in: Please reply to myself or John. Argh! It drives me spare. I do not understand why people find the subjunctive so difficult, and I dislike immensely the word gotten as well, but that may be a regional thing.
Talk to me. What gets under your skin?
Love the moustaches.
