Editing for Grammarphobes: Did You Know...?


...the word is memento, not momento, when referring to a souvenir or keepsake?

...fortuitous means to be limited to what happens by chance and is not an adjective version of fortunate or lucky?

Romance month finishes up with two interesting takes on love by Cleveland Gibson and Deborah Brodie. Next up, comedy.
