Rules of the Games
About · Anne-swers · Ask

Every game has rules; and, if you think of the English language as a game, then the do's and don'ts of grammar are its rules. The object isn't necessarily to beat an opponent; rather it is to communicate so effectively that the odds of obtaining what you want in life are greatly improved.

For three months late last year, Anne advertised free grammar advice through GoogleŽ. She wanted to provide personal answers to people who had real questions about writing and speaking in their everyday lives. She also posted the questions and answers on this web site for others to read.

Currently, you can still ask Anne a question through this site, and she will answer. However, you might want to check her Available Anne-swers first.
