My Insistence on Correct English:
As a grammatical pedant, I vituperate even the slightest syntactic inconsistencies with compulsive schadenfreude. Additionally, I have examined every page of the Chicago Manual of Style, investigated the etymology of hundreds of English words, and perused dictionaries for hours to find the perfect mot juste. Always the contrarian logomachist, I intentionaly use flat adverbs and sentence-ending prepositions to provoke linguistic arguments. I figuratively worship the logodædalist William Shakespeare. Although my self-endorsed expertise on the English language is dubious, I compensate with extravagant self-assuredness.
(NB: If a fellow user of EL&U interprets my brusque comments or answers as hostile or arrogant, then they are probably correct 😉)
