grammatically speaking / word culture


A close friend just gave me a mug that says, ‘I’m silently correcting your grammar.’

As Senior Account Executive at an advertising agency, it’s my job to review every piece of creative material before it’s sent to the client. So I’m constantly reviewing, analyzing, referring to those websites…and then doing it all over again. This is where my love/hate battle with grammar helps me on a daily basis, and obviously my friends have noticed 🙂

I’m not a grammar expert (I’d be nothing without Grammar Girl – GG & Grammarist). I’m always referring to these websites, discussing with my close friend Demar (Writer, Editor & fellow grammar lover) or calling my Jewish New Yorker Nana (another grammar lover) to figure out what the correct (or best) option is. That’s what I love about grammar though, I’m always learning something new.
