I'm pleased to introduce our newest collaborative user effort here on ELL, the Canonical Post.
The idea behind Canonical Posts is to take a subject which is often encountered by English Language Learners and create a post which thoroughly explains that topic. The goal is for these posts to be as useful and easy-to-understand as possible, so feedback is greatly appreciated, especially concerning areas which we could improve. Please do leave comments on the posts with any thoughts or questions you may have.
Without further ado, I present our first Canonical Post: Canonical Post #1: When to Trust Your Grammar Checker.
The next post in our lineup will be by the illustrious StoneyB, on the subject of Perfect Constructions. This one is still in the works, but we'll let you know when it goes up. Look forward to it!
We also welcome any suggestions as to the topics for future Canonical Posts, as well as volunteers to write them! Is there a subject that's been confusing you for a while that you would appreciate a post on, or something you've been itching to write about? Post them here! We'll review the suggestions and get in contact with those interested in contributing. Remember, like everything on ELL, this is a collaborative community effort. Thank you all for asking and answering and building this wonderful community—we couldn't possibly have done it without you!
If you'd like to be even more involved, feel free to drop by the Canonical Posts Chatroom anytime. The room is for free discussion of anything and everything Canonical Post-related, so come on in!
