The (super)power of language

I'm over at Andy Hollandbeck's blog today, talking about language, grammar and the power of a well-expressed idea:
The dour, dusty scold who snarls on the internet at every misplaced apostrophe and every split infinitive is missing the point. Grammar isn't about adherence to inherited wisdom solely for the sake of orthodox purity. It's about communication, connection, communion. Grammatical speech doesn't restrict you; it makes your ideas shine. There's a joy in linguistic expertise that is unknown to those who can't tell a well-constructed sentence from a poorly-constructed one.
Also, believe it or not, I'm talking about my new novel, which comes out today. You can see all my thoughts about the rules of grammar, as well as get links to buy my book, by visiting Andy's blog.
