Diacritical marks

Is there any chart or listing of diacritical marks and the English names for them?

Font

I think the font (no serif) is fine, but it could be bigger!!

Hi, Skinem! Ski-nem, or Skin-em? I don't find grammar all that sexy, either! But it is a tool in my work. My earlier grammar teachers would be amazed at my pirketiness. Word History - and Dr. Bob's Word Play - are fun. I am, here in Norway, especially interested in the ancient Norron language roots ...

Thanks for your patience! I know this is 6th-grade grammar, and I did learn it way back then. The thing is, I keep seeing the words misused. Because I am involved with editing and translating, it is important to me to know what is current good English usage, to avoid sounding archaic. And living her...

'Between' and 'Among'

Tchaa, I was taught that 'between' was between two items, and 'among' was, well, ja, among more than two items.

Are there two Grand Panjandrums out there? Or two pictures? Ahh, which would I choose BETWEEN the two....

'between' and 'among'

Here I am again, Kathleen in Norway, with another disturbance about grammar. To wit: from Alphadictionary.com/bb, the list of topics, 'Languages of the World' -- A discussion of the peculiarities of languages and the differences between them. Ja, picky, picky! But hey, doesn't anybody care about cor...

Hi, 'Slava'. Finally, somebody with clear, useful information! I will act on it immediately. Barnes & Noble provides overseas shipment -- some of them don't! Aha - so you weren't one of those making such baaaaad puns!! (well, they were fun...) Norwegian spies??? Spying on whom and for whom? I'll ask...

Grammar: 'like' and 'as'

Hello, thanks to you out there who did reply. I have been lost a while, and I don't really know how this Alpha Agora works. But it is something to work at, I appreciate this. I read in an old grammar that 'like' connects two things, while 'as' connects two clauses. Fx: This is like that, but 'do it ...

'like' and 'as'


Can somebody tell me if the differentiation of the use of 'like' and 'as' in comparatives is just old-fashioned and out of date in American English?
