SAGP: The Self-Appointed Grammar Police!

2nd July 2004

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

We are the Self-Appointed Grammar Police.

And as if [the difficulty of English rules] were not itself a sufficient obstacle to the aspiring writer, there are the self-appointed ``Grammar Police,'' just waiting to pounce on any error and to hold its perpetrator up to public ridicule.

Yes! That's us!

English grammar, spelling, usage and style: the final frontier. These are the chronicles of the Self-Appointed Grammar Police. We're on a five-year mission to explore the internet, and to criticise bad writing wherever we find it. We're going to boldly nail split infinitives that no-one has nailed before.
