Summer vacation may be around the corner but here at The Madeleine Brand Show we believe that learning never stops. So we're kicking off a new series today, a little refresher course to address all your most vexing grammar questions. You know, those things you learned in school way back when and then promptly forgot ... maybe over summer vacation.


Mignon Fogarty host of the Grammar Girl podcast, which you can find at her website,, and author of "Grammar Girl's 101 Troublesome Words You'll Master in No Time," which will be out in July.
