In any case, ME ME ME ME ME have proofreading credits for a book I love, to wit, the latest release from Chip Smith’s always thoughtful (well, except when he snorts Drano and agrees to publish me later this year, of course) Nine-Banded Books label, is…
CONFESSIONS OF AN ANTINATALIST!!!!!!
by Jim Crawford.
I couldn’t be prouder.
PS proof-monkey fuh fackts: -er vs more as a comparative:
The general rool of thmz is that two syllables or less is -er, three or more is ‘more,’ which generally works. (Cooler vs. more atrocious.) BUT the real, secret base rool iz: if it’s a middle English or olde Ynglishe root (ie not Greek or Latin) then it’s -er. If Greek or Latin, or Latin via French (huzzah for 1066 and all that! variety, spice, yer know), then use the alienating ‘more.’ Bitte!
