at9 Posted December 1, 2019 Share Posted December 1, 2019 Somebody suggested that we start a thread for grammar fiends, spelling hounds, latinists and other pedants. So let's split the infinitive and take the Fowler* express to the land of the semicolon. *Those from outside this Septic Isle** may not be aware of Fowler's English Usage: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fowlers-Modern-English-Usage-Re-Revised/dp/0198610211 **See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_Sceptred_Isle PS: When I wrote the OP, I'd forgotten that another Fowler was a railway engineer. A double meaning without even realising that I was doing it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Fowler_(engineer) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
