English is full of beauty and surprises, yet despite being the lingua franca of the globalization world, it has a reputation for being difficult to learn because its grammar has also so many quirks and contradictions.

Did you know:
- "Terry loves yogurt" is an example of illeism
- preposition stranding is a bogus rule
- sometimes it's acceptable to begin a sentence with "but" or "and"
- "Could you pass the salt?" is "whimperative"
- it's OK to boldly split infinitives

Many of us don't even know the basics, so not only does Grammar Geek reveal obscure grammar rules and bogus ones you can safely ignore, it's also a handy primer, so in the future you'll have no excuse for dangling a modifier or misplacing a semicolon.
