It’s been 10 years since this site was proposed in Area 51, so we’re celebrating ELL’s 10th anniversary!
In the beginning, this site was started by users of English Language and Usage (EL&U), as a place for all the questions from learners that didn’t quite fit there. Thus, a new site was born to better serve those questions and their answers. While ELL remains linked to EL&U (for example, via migrated questions), ELL has really flourished as its own site.
Ten years is a long time, and we appreciate all the people who have been here from the start, and also those who have joined along the way. Feel free to share your thoughts and stories in the answers and comments.
We’ve compiled some birthday-related posts to help you get in the birthday spirit:
- Is the using of "present" and "gift" considered a matter of style?
- What does "Candygram" mean?
- "a ten years old boy" or "a ten year old boy"
- What is the verbal phrase for "making a candle stop burning"?
- Why do native speakers say 'Come on in' rather than 'Come in'?
