Grammar Snobs Are Great Big Meanies: A Guide to Language for Fun and Spite

June Casagrande

Publisher: Penguin BooksFormat: Paperback

What do suicidal pandas, doped-up rock stars, and a naked Pamela Anderson have in common? They're all a heck of a lot more interesting than reading about predicate nominatives and hyphens. June Casagrande knows this and has invented a whole new twist on the grammar book. Grammar Snobs Are Great Big Meanies is a laugh-out-loud funny collection of anecdotes and essays on grammar and punctuation, as well as hilarious critiques of the self-appointed language experts.Chapters include: I'm Writing This While Naked—The Oh-So Steamy Predicate NominativeSemicolonoscopy—Colons, Semicolons, Dashes, and Other Probing AnnoyancesI'll Take “I Feel Like a Moron” for $200, Alex—When to Put Punctuation Inside Quotation MarksSnobbery Up with Which You Should Not Put Up—PrepositionsIs That a Dangler in Your Memo or Are You Just Glad to See Me?Hyphens—Life-Sucking, Mom-and-Apple-Pie-Hating, Mime-Loving, Nerd-Fight-Inciting Daggers of the DamnedCasagrande delivers practical and fun language lessons not found anywhere else, demystifying the subject and taking it back from the snobs. In short, it's a grammar book people will actually want to read—just for the fun of it.
