Points on Style


Welcome to my Points on Style, where I will post (probably) random bits and rants on style. Not ‘style’ as in ‘fashion’, but writing style.

I’ll talk about grammar, punctuation, spelling, and so forth. I’ll also talk on different types of style, such as business, technical, Canadian, American, or fiction — if I feel like it. I may even answer questions on any of these subjects. If I don’t know the answer, chances are I can find it somewhere on this wonderful hinterland called the Internet, or in a print resource like a style guide or dictionary.

I like style guides. I read them for fun.
