I love reading about interesting differences in grammar in different languages, e.g. Finnish cases. Is there a good book, site or something else that treats "interesting things in grammar" in any language?

Although the question is quite interesting to me, I'm afraid it's off topic here because: 1- it's not specifically about english; 2- it's subjective (good book for me or for you?); 3- It doesn't have a definite answer (again subjective, everyone can propose a different book)... Unless you can rephrase it, but I doubt it considering the question itself, it will be closed. Have you read the FAQ? (I suppose so, but just in case –  Alenanno May 30 '11 at 9:15
    
Furthermore, suppose that even a book like this exists, it would be HUGE... I mean, consider all of these languages, such a book would have millions of volumes... –  Alenanno May 30 '11 at 9:19
    
I suppose Dickens would be a good choice, because he has very interesting use of grammar. –  Thursagen May 30 '11 at 11:01
