The following is a list of other useful sites relating to grammar, writing, formatting, and research. Descriptions follow the site name.

 

 

 Chompchomp.com

  • This site contains handouts of grammar concepts as well as links to fun, interactive exercises.

Evaluating Web Pages

Grammar Girl

  • A database of Mignon Fogarty's (aka Grammar Girl) podcasts on various grammar topics, such as "Comma Splices" or "Spoonerisms, Mondegreens, Eggcorns, and Malapropisms." You can also see the transcript of each episode, so you don't necessarily need to download it.

 

University North Carolina Chapel Hill's Writing Center

  • A pretty comprehensive collection of handouts on the writing process, essay structure, editing essays, as well as a section of handouts on writing in specific fields.

 

Grammar Grater

  • Minnesota Public Radio's Grammar Grater is a weekly podcast of short (less than ten-minute) broadcasts of topics such as often-misused words and use of passive voice. They are set to fun music, and there are transcripts of each session. Thanks to Henry Aronson for this fun link! Good as a resource for students doing a project with grammar.
