Updated Resource Page: Grammar Guerrilla

Guerilla-GorillaI was surprised to learn that of the more than 6,000 Heidelblog posts, two of the most popular have been Grammar Guerrilla posts: Grammar Guerrilla: Comfort v Comfortability and Grammar Guerrilla: Agreement v Agreeance.1 From this surprising fact I infer that there is some interest among HB readers in grammar and writing. Good news: there is a library of HB posts on grammar and they are collected now on the updated Grammar Guerrilla page, which also offers a bibliography for the reader who seeks to become a better writer.



1. There are two accepted spellings, guerilla and guerrilla.

  1. That’s great! I’ll sure be using it. I still get confused now and then when it’s appropriate to use “who” vs. “whom”. If you want to create a post for those, I’d appreciate it.

  2. I have my own bugaboo from a career in the military—“use” versus “utilize.” Military and government writers are prone to the embellishment of reports. The pinnacle is reached in performance reports that are intended to increase the probability of someone’s promotion to a higher rank. I suspect that the writers are attempting to sound more technical or sophisticated, e.g., “Captain Smith utilized squadron resources to achieve a 50% increase in efficiency.”
