Lingua, Frankly

Lingua Frankly is a fun, short blog about language. There's some etymology for the language nerds, fun stories about words, and a little advice for people who write.

Along the way, Lingua Frankly takes the mystery out of complicated grammar. From the passive voice to the perils of false attraction to the predicate nominative, Lingua Frankly breaks things down so they’re more interesting and less opaque.

And, of course, there are stories—peanut butter and jelly, garden paths, and the curse of knowledge.

I write to learn, and to organize my thoughts. Some of my talks and books started here. I write about Markdown, Git, pizza, and comics. There's no theme. I can do what I want.
