Of course language is ever-evolving and grammar should serve literary expression, not rule it... Nevertheless, there is plenty of fun to be had with this witty and informative card game for language lovers, based on the New York Times bestseller Dreyer’s English.
There are 100 entertaining sentences waiting for you, the copy editor, to correct or 'STET' (a copy editor’s term that means “let it stand”). The first person to spot the error or call out “STET!” gets the card. Compete for points in a straightforward grammar game, or play around with style and syntax and whip the author’s sentences into splendid shape. Either way, the person with the most cards at the end of the game wins!
