Geoffrey K. Pullum:
Posts on the Chronicle of Higher Education’s Lingua Franca blog

This is a reverse chronological listing of my posts on Lingua Franca, a blog about language and writing in academe on the website of The Chronicle of Higher Education. My posts appear there once a week. The Chronicle maintains a full archive. Please note that when I wrote "300 Up, Still Getting It Wrong", I thought it was post number 300, but there was a mistake in my records, and it was actually number 301. Embarrassing, but what can I do. The list below shows (I think) the correct numbers.

Comments are usually open at the Chronicle, but they are moderated by editorial staff who try to filter out spam, obscenities, advertisements, death threats — the familiar flotsam and jetsam of life in the blogosphere. (Please note, I have no control at all over this filtering process.) You should email me (pullum at gmail.com) if you seek a reaction or an answer, because I cannot guarantee to read all the comments that are posted on the site. Some days, to be frank, I can’t bring myself to read any of them.
