Bonjour tout le monde !

Full disclosure: I strive to balance my descriptive/prescriptive scale, but I am admittedly prone to the prescriptive. Shamelessly.

My appreciation for this site and community comes from the joys of observing and sharing commonly accepted idiomatic expressions in this ever-changing bastard child of a language. I speak a "common" middle American English with some beautiful influences from the American South and from Canada. I am fluent in French and Québécois French (C2).

Foreign languages, linguistics, and pedagogy are my academic passions (B.A. McGill 2008), and I have a background in Latin (caveat emptor) as well as working competencies in Italian, Spanish, and German.

As a teacher, working with children brings great opportunities to research language development and intersubjectivity. Occasionally I work taking orders and vending vittles at a corporate restaurant near you. Both these positions give me a wide sampling of language usages, and I am eager to share and learn.

I also enjoy long walks on the beach and foreign films.
