Ken, point taken, thanks. Love your blog.


Great advice! I frequently use this tip to catch those pesky run-on sentences as well.

I love this tip, but i must comment on your note...if any of the cubicle dwellers know who Olivia de Havilland is, ill buy you lunch…

Dan Santow

Danny, I think you underestimate America's cubicle dwellers (I was one until a few years ago and I knew who Olivia de Havilland was - and Ava Gardner, too). Anyhow, since I can always use a free lunch, if any readers/movie buffs out there work in a cubicle AND can identify Olivia de Havilland, please let me know.

Why "Word Wise"?

  • When I started to e-mail out a weekly writing tip to my Chicago colleagues at Edelman in 2002, little did I know how quickly how many people outside my office would start to request it. But word spread, as word is wont to do, and in 2006 the e-mail evolved into this blog. The tips, which are about grammar, usage and style, have a dual purpose – to remind my colleagues in PR of the power of the written word and, more generally, to support and perpetuate clear, concise, creative, honest, lively, stylish, compelling writing everywhere. In 2009 I started to add commentary about and links to stories and other blog posts related to the media, marketing, writing and, sometimes, just interesting stuff. For some reason, I also started Twittering (at SantowDan).
