All the English You Will Ever Need


The English language is constantly evolving, both the words we use and the rules that control the usage of those words.  Therefore, it is impossible to ever have a definitive grammar guide, or, if you will, a Complete Guide of American English.  And that’s our excuse.



Word of the Every So Often

cicerone:  (noun)  (pronounced:  sis-er-roni)  a guide who gives information to sightseers.  Our cicerone was only interested in macaroni, so we didn't see much of the city, but we were well fed.

What?  There was nobody there at all -- either at the restaurant or the business that made this sign -- who didn't know how to use an apostrophe?

National Tell A Joke Day

Let’s face it, August is rather devoid of meaningful holidays.  Not to put down such important holidays as National Watermelon Day on the 3rd, Wiggle Your Toes Day on the 6th, or National Dog Day, which falls on the 26th, along with National Women’s Equality Day.  But by “meaningful,” we mean days that you actually get off of work for, like Labor Day, or a holiday that at least gives us yet another reason to drink, like St. Patrick’s Day, the Fourth of July, or... well, pretty much every holiday.  (August 2014)  So here at HGP we’ve chosen National Tell a Joke Day on August 16 as our candidate for the next Federal Holiday.  More... (including HGP’s Official Joke!)
