Calling all grammar nerds and language lovers! In this podcast episode, I talk with Ellen Jovin about her New York City-based pop-up grammar advice stand, the Grammar Table. Ellen is the author of several books on language, a business writing teacher, and a grammar expert. She is the co-founder of Syntaxis, a communication skills training firm.
In 2018, Ellen lugged a table, chair, and grammar necessities from her Manhattan apartment to a subway stop and set up shop dispensing grammar advice. We discuss her latest book, birdwatching in Central Park, her Grammar Table travels, and the 25 languages she's studied. She describes memorable experiences from her nationwide tour and the types of individuals who frequent her advice table.
