Ill-fitting grammar are like ill-fitting shoes. You can get used to it for a bit, but then one day your toes fall off and you can’t walk to the bathroom. ~Jasper Fforde
As the image conjured by the above quote lingers in my mind – and perhaps yours too – allow me to introduce my theme for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge.
I prefer having a theme and create content around it – it makes it so much easier to focus my research and writing.
For this year’s challenge, I’m focusing on grammar and the common glitches that trip writers up. As a second-language English speaker, I include myself in this description.
I started to learn English at the age of nine. Before that, I spoke only Portuguese. I dedicated myself to this new language and was a top student both at school and at university where I majored in English Literature.
English grammar is not easy to master, even for first-language speakers and writers. It is with that in mind that I dedicate this year’s A to Z Challenge to the common glitches that tend to trip writers up. My aim is to make the articles informative and fun.
So join me on this journey into the marvellous and oft-times confusing English grammar.
