Welcome back to [livejournal.com profile] fandom_grammar! We are returning to regular posting starting this Monday. We'll have a reduced schedule for the time being with posts only on Mondays.

In addition to finding Fandom Grammar on Livejournal, you can now also find us on Twitter and Tumblr! Our extended social media will include links to the articles posted on this site, including links to previously posted content. New content will be posted Tuesdays, and previous content on Fridays (starting mid-October).

Twitter: @fandomgrammar
Tumblr: fandom-grammar


Come back next Monday to get your grammar on!


If you have any questions about grammar, syntax, or writing, please submit them to our queue. These can be questions you have personally or errors you see when reading.

We apologize for the delay in notification, but due to some real-life conflicts, [livejournal.com profile] fandom_grammar will be taking an extended hiatus. Never fear, [livejournal.com profile] fandom_grammar will be returning in July! This summer we'll be back to answering your questions and continuing to provide grammar and writing advice. Additionally, we'll be expanding to new social media outlets—so we really will be back and bigger than ever!

You are more than welcome to continue asking grammar and writing questions, and we'll incorporate them in our queue for our return this summer.

Mind those commas while we're gone.

Once again, we're running low on Answer topics, so it's your chance to help us shape our content.

Got a question you're arguing with your beta? Got a pet peeve you wish fandom would fix? Run into a problem somewhere else that still applies to fannish writing? We'll take them all.

Go to the Ask a Question post to suggest them. Comments are screened, so don't worry about being embarrassed.

No topic is too obscure, no question too nitpicky.

May the Grammar be with you!

Happy Holidays, grammar mavens and aficionados. As is usual at this time of year, [livejournal.com profile] fandom_grammar will be closing shop for the holidays. We'll be back in the new year to continue answering your grammar questions.

Also, if you have an over-abundance of grammar and writing knowledge, we'll be looking to add to our writing staff in 2015. Keep an eye out for when applications are open in January/February.

In the meantime, if you have a grammar question, please go to the Ask a Question post. Even though we're taking a break, we're still taking your questions.

May the Grammar be with you!

Come April every year we do a changing of the guard, bringing in new Fandom Grammarians and allowing current Fandom Grammarians to recommit or determine that they need to be spending time elsewhere. This year we are bidding adieu to [livejournal.com profile] mendax, who has been with us since 2008, and [livejournal.com profile] kay_brooke, who is one of our founding grammarians. [livejournal.com profile] supercheesegirl, who has also been here since our doors opened, is taking a reduced role and will be helping behind the scenes when her schedule allows, but is officially retired.

If you would like to review some of the marvelous articles they've written, you can find their author tags in the community sidebar.

When one door closes, another opens, and so I'm more than pleased to announce the newest members to the Fandom Grammarians. Please welcome [livejournal.com profile] aqua_crescent, [livejournal.com profile] blackjackcat, [livejournal.com profile] bluewolf458, [livejournal.com profile] randi2204, [livejournal.com profile] flipflop_diva, [livejournal.com profile] pinkeuphoria1, and [livejournal.com profile] zellieh to our ranks. You'll be hearing from them in the next few months.

You can read all about the experiences of our new (and old) Fandom Grammarians at our Meet the Fandom Grammarians post.

Tis the season for many things, including (apparently) calendrical errors. The previous post made regarding Narrative Writing Tips was posted far too early and needs to go back to Santa’s workshop for some tinkering. In the meantime, you can read up on whether or not to use present tense to describe someone who is deceased.

Though if you’re eager for some narration tips, check out:

Come April every year we do a changing of the guard, bringing in new Fandom Grammarians and allowing current Fandom Grammarians recommit or evaluate that they need to be spending time elsewhere. This year one of our founding grammarians is bidding adieu, and I offer a thank you and a fond fare-thee-well to [livejournal.com profile] skroberts.

If you would like to review some of the marvelous articles she's written, you can find her author tag in the community sidebar.

When one door closes, another opens, and so I'm more than pleased to announce the newest members to the Fandom Grammarians. Please welcome [livejournal.com profile] ariestess and [livejournal.com profile] moon_raven2 to our ranks. You'll be hearing from them both in April.

You can read all about the experiences of our new (and old) Fandom Grammarians at our Meet the Fandom Grammarians post.

I'd like to thank everyone who applied to be a Fandom Grammarian for this round and encourage you to apply again in the future—I'm amazed at the talent we have in the fandom community. Applications will be open again later this year.

Summer Break 2010

Wednesday, 7 July 2010 10:21

It's summer vacation for some of us grammarians so we're changing it up for the summer. Instead of answering the usual round of questions, this summer the Fandom Grammarians will be offering 2 new kinds of posts.

On alternating weeks you'll see:

Mondays: Commonly Confused Words
Fridays: Friday Funnies

The Monday Commonly Confused Words will explain some words that are commonly confused because they have similar spellings, sounds, or meanings. The Fandom Grammarians will strive to help you gain ways to keep these confusing words straight!

The Friday Funnies posts will consist of webcomics relating to issues of spelling, grammar, syntax, and style, from a variety of sources.

This format will run from July 5 through September 27 when all of the Fandom Grammarians will return in full force to finish out 2010.

We're still accepting questions, so if you have a question to submit to the queue, please don't hesitate to ask it. Our normal question schedule will resume in October.

At the start of the year, I asked for all of the Fandom Grammarians to evaluate whether or not they could continue with their duties here. Four of our grammarian fellows have decided to retire. I offer a thank you and a fond fare-thee-well to:

[livejournal.com profile] katiefoolery
[livejournal.com profile] momebie
[livejournal.com profile] stoopbeck
[livejournal.com profile] verilyverity

Time to submit more questions!

Our list of questions is running low, so we'd love it if you'd go here and submit topics for us to talk about. No pet peeve is too trivial, no terminology too obscure. Ask us questions you already know the answer to but think other people might be interested in, ask us questions you've always been embarrassed to admit you don't know the answer to.

Well, just grammar questions. ;)

Help us continue to create weekly content and submit your questions here.
[identity profile] melayneseahawk.livejournal.com
That's right: the Grammarians are running low on questions again and it's up to You, Dear Readers, to give us things to talk about. No grammatical point is too small, no question too nitpicky.

Do your duty, and submit!
