Rebel with a clause


This episode originally aired on October 20, 2022.

Few people will tell you they love grammar. Ellen Jovin is the exception.

Four years ago, she set up a table outside of her Manhattan apartment to answer the everyday grammar questions of passers-by.

She found that while many consider grammar a chore, most people have an interest in the rules that govern our language.

Ellen Jovin has now been to 47 states with her grammar table, and distilled her experience into her new book Rebel With A Clause: Tales And Tips From A Roving Grammarian.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher she joins us to share her experience and to answer your questions.
