Sorry for the delay. The boys came home on Sunday night and life has been rather full ever since. Let us start off with a question from Asha:
Here's a question for the blogathon - which one is right?
1. She delivered a baby.
2. She was delivered of a baby.
99% of the world seems to be going with the first one and I read somewhere that the second one is the correct usage. Any idea?
Who wants to answer that one?
Chinkurli contributes video footage of some Grammar Nazis.
Saya quietly makes her point.
Suki Ma'am-ma'am wields her red marker.
Richa explains the difference between 'ki' and 'kee' for written Hindi. As an aside, I'd like to say that I'm very happy she's talking about a language other than English. As an Indian living in India I feel quite as many people (if not more) mangle Hindi as do English. I plead guilty to it myself!
Zephyr speaks Indish.
And lastly, Itchy scratches her head over titles and introductions.
I think that's it. Anybody I forgot?
1. How could I forget? Dipali posted on the endearing aspect of accidental hilarity.
2. Ajay compiles an arbit list of common cases of language gone wild.
