Words, Words, Words

Nancy Friedman at Away With Words guides us to the Coleman Partners website for a well-written essay called "Marketing & the English Language: A Guide to Better Communication," which is worth reading. Ms. Friedman does warn that the site's design is too clever by half, so you'll have to click on the external link, then click "Explain," and the click "Logical" to get to the "off-white papers," of which there are at present, just the one.

I was not the first to tread the sleazy thin ice of gramattical posturing. But", at least I wasn't the last ... sigh.
