Language tips from The Eagle’s copy desk

The copy desk at The Wichita Eagle is known for its sense of humor and spirited discussions on usage, grammar and style.

We’ve shifted our focus to short tips on Twitter (@GrammarMonkeys) with occasional longer posts here. If you have a question, send it via Twitter or e-mail us at
