Language Corner

Language Corner, featured on the Columbia Journalism Review, addresses "[v]arious rules of the language, including rules of thumb ... (with as little jargon as possible)[,] because we need to know the rules to know when to follow them, when to bend them, even when to break them." It's written by Evan Jenkins, whose résumé includes a stint as senior editor of the Racing Times. Evan "claims infallibility only in matters concerning 'who' and 'whom,' and even there opposes following the rules out the window."
