*** Thank you for writing to me.  I am very happy to hear from you.  

[May I make a suggestion?  When you are writing English -- either for fun or for your studying -- do NOT use shortened or abbreviated word forms.  You will get in the habit of using them, and that is not good.  For example, here is the proper way to write your first sentence:  I am glad THAT I can write a letter to YOU again.]

I want to send you a list of many English grammar web sites -- GOOD ONES ONLY.  Some of them have explanations that are followed by little tests that you can take yourself, to see how well you have understood each lesson.  Each recommended site has an annotation, a brief description of what the site contains.  AND . . . each site is hyperlinked, so all you have to do is click on the web site address and your computer will go to it immediately.

However, I need a personal e-mail address, so that I can send the document as an attachment, something that I cannot do at Allexperts.

Please send me YOUR e-mail address at MY address:  tedjnesbitt@netscape.net

Thank you,

Ted

Expertise

I have an interest in the meanings of words and phrases, as well as how and when they became part of the English language. I enjoy researching idioms, colloquialisms, dialects, and obscurities of all kinds. I prefer short questions on a particular subject, and I will not accept lengthy research projects or term papers. NOTE: ALLEXPERTS CLAIMS THAT I TRANSLATE FROM ENGLISH TO LATIN AND FROM LATIN TO ENGLISH. I DO NOT. ALLEXPERTS REFUSES TO DELETE THE LATIN-TO-ENGLISH SERVICE -- ONE THAT I DO NOT PROVIDE. TRUST ME ON THIS: ALLEXPERTS IS WRONG. I DO NOT TRANSLATE FROM ENGLISH TO LANGUAGE. LOOK FOR A LANGUAGE EXPERT INSTEAD. ETYMOLOGY AND TRANSLATING SERVICES ARE ENTIRELY DIFFERENT. ALLEXPERTS SHOULD KNOW THAT. ALLEXPERTS DOES NOT KNOW THAT. I HAVE TRIED FOR MANY YEARS TO GET THEM TO CHANGE. THEY WILL NOT. SORRY, BUT I DO NOT TRANSLATE FROM ENGLISH TO LATIN.

Experience

I am the bibliographic instruction and reference librarian at a public
college. My master's thesis concerns William Faulkner's tragic novels. I formerly taught advanced placement English at two schools in the Philadelphia area.
I have been a member of the grammar and writing section of Allexperts
for more than a year.
