The Best Of Our Knowledge #1175
Do you constantly split infinitives, start sentences with “and or “but” and end sentences with a preposition? Have no fear, you’ve done nothing wrong. It seems many of the grammar rules that we’ve been following over the years are completely bogus. Today on The Best Of Our Knowledge, we’ll talk to an English professor about the seven bogus grammar errors that you don’t need to worry about...and a lot more about the state of writing in general.
Plus we’ll spend an academic minute finding out what goes on in our brains to create language in the first place.
