On a scale of 1 to 10, can you guess how big a stickler you are? (Your friends and colleagues probably can.)
No matter! There’s room in this world for us all, whether you see yourself as a promoter of editorial love and tolerance, an upholder of clarity and standards, or someone who just wants peace in publishing.
Here at Shop Talk, we’re vegging out for the holidays and skipping our monthly Chicago Style Workout. We’ll be back with a new one in January, but meanwhile just for fun we invite you to measure your peeving profile with this grammar survey.
It’s all in fun, but if you don’t like your results, feel free to take the quiz again. And the comments are open—let us know how you really feel!
