Language Myths | Grammarphobia The Living Dead The house of grammar has many rooms, and some of them are haunted . Despite the best efforts of grammatical exorcists, the ghosts of dead rules and the spirits of imaginary taboos are still rattling and thumping about the old place. It’s no longer considered a crime to split an infinitive or end a sentence with a preposition, for example, but the specters of worn-out rules have a way of coming back to haunt us. In the interest of laying a few to rest, let’s dedicate to each a tombstone, complete with burial service. (For more about these and other language myths, check out our books.) Let Bygone Rules Be Gone TOMBSTONE: Don’t split an infinitive. R.I.P. The truth is that the phrase “split infinitive” is misleading. A sentence like that sounds natural because in English, the best place for an adverb (like discreetly) is right in front of the word it describes (mention). Sometimes, rearranging the words to avoid a “split” can be ridiculous. R.I.P. R.I.P. R.I.P. R.I.P. R.I.P.

Gonzo: A Graphic Biography of Hunter S. Thompson by Maria Popova Fear and loathing in six panels. The past few years have given us some stellar graphic nonfiction, lending the comic book genre to “grown-up” storytelling ranging from photojournalism to media history to biography. Gonzo: A Graphic Biography of Hunter S. Thompson offers exactly what it says on the tin, and does so brilliantly — an uncommon biography of legendary iconoclastic author (and garden fence expert) Hunter S. Thompson, revered as the father of Gonzo journalism and reviled as an addict, a bum, a liar, a thief, a sociopath, a hedonistic outlaw. Hope-Smith tells The Wall Street Journal: Visually, the trick was to not shy away from the ‘Fear and Loathing Hunter.’ Thanks, Kirstin Donating = Loving Bringing you (ad-free) Brain Pickings takes hundreds of hours each month.
