An editor who is surprised to find she is also a writer. A dyed-in-the-wool New Englander and all-around language maven.

@TalkOnPointe Yeah, the caller said "Wooster," (with the "oo" in "look") in a classic only-locals-can-do-it voice.

I finally learned how to teach my guys to ID the passive voice. If you can insert "by zombies" after the verb, you have passive voice.

Where this tendency comes from is less obvious—prob. owes something to our weakness for certainty and corresponding aversion to uncertainty.

@StanCarey I sometimes get grief for prescriptivist tendencies, but a hired editor is a natural descriptivist, conforming to expectations.
