Editing for Grammarphobes: A Wednesday Quickie


I haven't done a grammar post in awhile, so here is a quickie courtesy of Sue Sommer's wonderful book, The Bugaboo Review.


Wanton is an adjective meaning "lewd or immoral."

Wonton is a delicious kind of stuffed Chinese noodle.


Hmmmm ... I do have a wanton lust for wontons! :)

Oh! Wanton was used in Hamlet, without a footnote, and now it makes much more sense. Of course I didn't think Shakespeare meant the noodle, but I was wondering.

Very nice, Unpublished Life. :)

Bev, what can I say?

LOL, Chelsea. :)

And then, there are the wanton wontons. You want to be careful of those. They can be very spicy. ;)
Well played, Jayne. :)
