About

Theodore [pron. /ˈwɪti, ˈhænsəm, ˈtʃɑɹmɪŋ/ ], (1997– ): Self-proclaimed etymological, lexical, and grammatical expert, logomachist extraordinaire, and proponent of the Oxford comma (vide supra).

I have examined every page of the Chicago Manual of Style, investigated the etymology of hundreds of English words, and perused dictionaries for hours to find the perfect mot juste. Additionally, I intentionaly use flat adverbs and sentence-ending prepositions to provoke linguistic arguments with prescriptivists. Although my self-endorsed knowledge of the English language is dubious, I compensate with unearned self-assuredness.
