Grammar in poetry

In this podcast, I talk to Dan Smith, Donall Dempsey, and Janice Windle about grammar in poetry. We have a nice little ramble about reading, writing, and feeling poetry.

Grammar and spelling online: An interview with Laurence Stark

At last, another podcast! This time I spoke to my friend and fellow language nut Laurence Stark, who runs a niche interest website called Minorzine.

We discuss grammar and spelling and why people love or hate it, the movement of books from paper to screen, and how exactly to go about correcting people online without sounding like a douchebag.

Which words where

Yes, I now do podcasts! This is just a short piece in which I bother a number of people to define a series of homonyms. Expect more in the next few weeks as I seek out people passionate about correct grammar and spelling.

This week looks at homonyms spelled wrong across the internet, and whether people actually confuse these or simply don’t bother to correct themselves online.
