I plan to write my first post on my love of grammar–I assure you that it will be far more interesting than it probably sounds to those who may not share this passion.
If you haven’t already (my guess is 98% of those reading are in that “haven’t” category), I urge you to check out Kitty Burns Florey’s fantastic book, Sister Bernadette’s Barking Dog: The Quirky History and Lost Art of Diagramming Sentences. It’s a fabulous book, and it is precisely the book that my English professor recommended to me to turn me on to diagramming. It certainly did the trick.
If you’re itching to know more about the book or the author, Kitty Burns Florey, come back tomorrow for my run down on the grandeur that is this book.
