    About The Book

    This book is for people who experience heartbreak over love notes with subject-verb disagreements…for anyone who’s ever considered hanging up the phone on people who pepper their speech with such gems as “irregardless”, “expresso” or “disorientated” … and for the earnest souls who wonder if it’s “Woe is Me”, or “Woe is I,” or even “Woe am I.”

    Martha Brockenbrough’s Things That Make Us (Sic) is a laugh-out-loud guide to grammar and language, a snarkier American answer to Lynn Truss’ runaway success, Eats, Shoots & Leaves. Brockenbrough is the founder of National Grammar Day and SPOGG — the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar — and as serious as she is about proper usage, her voice is funny, irreverent, and never condescending. Things That Make Us (Sic) addresses common language stumbling stones such as evil twins, clichés, jargon, and flab, and offers all the spelling tips, hints, and rules that are fit to print. It’s also hugely entertaining, with letters to high-profile language abusers, including David Hasselhoff, George W. Bush, and Canada’s Maple Leafs [sic], as well as a letter to — and a reply from — Her Majesty, the Queen of England.

    Brockenbrough has written a unique compendium combining letters, pop culture references, handy cheat sheets, rants, and historical references that is as helpful as it is hilarious.
