Welcome and thank you for visiting my site. This is a work in progress and I’m learning as I go so please be patient with me! I hope to use this blog to “house” what might seem like random information about the English language, but is in some way interesting to me and/or I want to share it with past, present, or future trainees. The posts might seem familiar to some of you because often times your questions are what prompt me to write down my thoughts and/or do more research about something (usually both!) and I think it would be useful for others as well. That being said, if you ever have any questions or, even better, want to start a word investigation with me, please do so! Thanks again….and remember….English isn’t crazy!
