Forums for Grammar Nerds?
July 29, 2014 7:05 AM   Subscribe

I feel like I should be able to find this somehow, but I'm just not having much luck - where do grammar nerds go online? I'd like to find some forums. I've found a few language blogs (and if you can recommend more of those, too, I'd appreciate it) and a couple of grammar forums, but they weren't quite what I'm looking for. I want a place to really geek out on grammar/language - sentence diagramming, obscure grammatical rules, history of the English language, etc.

What have you already found? E.g., I assume you know about Language Log? (with posts like graph of languages that are Greek to other languages in other languages)

Well, there is the English Language and Usage StackExchange site.

I've been following Language Log for a little while. English Language and Usage I just found a few days ago. The majority of the ones I've found so far are for ESL students. The Grammar Exchange and the Grammar forum on are a bit closer to what I'm looking for. I guess I want a Language Lovers Forum, where it's not just about asking specific questions in the hope of getting answers, but having fun with language.

There are 2700 people on the Facebook group for the language-related radio show I do. It's mostly about fun.
