Oxford Dictionaries Online: Useful writing advice for free

Besides producing and selling excellent printed resources, Oxford Dictionaries provides, at no cost, a ton of useful information and advice on writing at its website:
  • Better Writing--including grammar, spelling, punctuation, and abbreviations
  • Word of Words--including a blog and frequently asked questions
  • Puzzles and Games--including crosswords and Hangman.
Today's edition (Dec. 4) of my online daily paper, Garbl's Style: Write Choices, included this article from the Oxford Dictionaries website:
Let there be concord: some tips on bringing agreement to subjects and verbs.
Garbl's Style is available at the Editorial Style tab above and by free email subscription. Of course, my own website, Garbl's Writing Center, also provides a ton of writing advice and resources:
  • Garbl's Writing Resources Online
  • Garbl's Editorial Style Manual
  • Garbl's Concise Writing Guide
  • Garbl's Plain English Writing Guide
  • Garbl's Writing Bookshelf.
Also available is my writing, editing and training business: Garbl's Pencil & Good Cause Communications.
