The Good Doctor English Is In


| September 5, 2003

Yes, when language woes plague thy soul, or merely your red-ink-ridden paper, the Good Doctor English is there to provide relief. Write him at gooddoctorenglish@yahoo.com, and he will 'field your English language questions, be they concerns about the existential nature of the lowly comma or the pros and cons of dating your literature professor.' The Good Doctor may not always be technically correct, but his wit entertains, and his advice is more accessible than those silly college copy-editing courses. After all, as the Good Doctor says: '. . . grammar isn't a set of rules that one memorizes, but a living, complex, evolving, entity that must be experienced, enjoyed, and accepted for what it is. In other words, grammar is much like a woman.'
