Package Description

Date: April 20, 2023

Time: 4-5 p.m. ET


We spend a lot of time talking about the pitfalls of English. But how weird is it really, in the larger language world? You may be surprised at how normal English is for all its seeming complexities – and where it’s actually a grammatical outlier. This presentation will offer some cross-linguistic context for English and its maverick friends. Expanding on a session given at ACES Evolve, we’ll revisit much of the same material but dive a bit deeper into linguistic thought and what it tells us about writing and editing.

Cost: Free for ACES members/$30 for non-members
