Author’s Answers 131

Just a little post today, don’t want to spoil everyone. For a little over a year now, I’ve been a regular contributor Jay Dee Archer’s Author’s Questions, which is a series of questions asked to many different authors. Most of the questions are about writing, at least to some degree.

Once a week, I’ll post my answer here and link to the rest. I hope you enjoy reading the others as much as I have. In any case here is the most recent question, and my answer.

Question: Which rule(s) of English grammar do you find most difficult?

English was not the first language I learned, and so I sometimes have some trouble with word order. As a follower of the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis, I am a living example of how language shapes the brain. My first language was ASL (American Sign Language) and so I think kinetically.
