The Grammar Geek

In April 2017, I launched my podcast, Word-Origin Wednesday. Each week, I walk my listeners through a word origin in five minutes or less. If you're a fan of word origins, check it out by clicking here. You can also search for it on iTunes or in your favorite podcast app. If you like my podcast, be sure to subscribe to it and leave me a review.

I take requests! If there's a word origin you're wondering about, email me at and tell me about it. I'll make sure to get back to you, and I might feature your word on an upcoming episode.

In February 2019, I began blogging about grammar, the English language, and other things that are important to me as a copyeditor and proofreader. Please visit The Grammar Geek's Blog and leave me a comment or two.

If there's anything you'd like me to write a future blog post about, email me at
