Real Grammar - Barrie England's Blog on contemporary grammar

Real Grammar - Barrie England's Blog on contemporary grammar:
"'A Grammar book does not attempt to teach people how they ought to speak, but on the contrary, unless it is a very bad or a very old work, it merely states how, as a matter of fact, certain people do speak at the time at which it is written.' H C Wyld, Elementary Lessons in English Grammar, 1925"

Cool blog to follow if you enjoy sharpening your grammar skills. Contemporary grammar is different from textbook grammar (as the quote from 1925 explains).
