Two new grammar geek favorites

Minnesota Public Radio has a podcast called Grammar Grater. Writer and producer Luke Taylor and his crew, being radio folks, do a good job of presenting grammar and usage issues in an audio format. I liked the radio drama in Episode 44 about using further and farther. Grammar Grater also has a Gather site where listeners can weigh in. Listeners can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.

From Grammar Grater Episode 42, I learned about the Typo Eradication Advancement League, made up of Jeff Deck and other fun-loving folks who go around documenting and sometimes correcting bad public signs. The TEAL site has a cool map of the country with clickable sites. Check out two in North Carolina (Morehead City and Williamston).

I need to tell TEAL about this sign at Five County Stadium. Go, Mudcats!
