Even Santa Claus has Christmas wishes. Last year, he noticed quite a few errors in the letters he received from both children and adults. This year, Santa wishes to receive error-free letters. So, he has given the Graceful Grammarian the esteemed title of “Honorary Elf.” My assignment is to help all believers to learn proper usage of English in order to avoid some common mistakes in their letters.
From now through December 23, you’ll see my chronicle of how Santa and I are working together to bring the gift of clear expression to English speakers all over the world. I’ll post about some of the errors that I frequently encounter and how to avoid them. This way, by the time we arrive at Christmas Eve, you’ll be able to edit your letters according to Santa’s specifications.
Let’s work together to make this the merriest Christmas for Santa!
