M Grammar

Applications: Last Day

Today is the last day to submit your application to be a Fandom Grammarian. All applications must be received by the end of today. (Some wiggle room built in based on the fact that I won't be up at midnight to close applications, so technically you'll have until I check my email in the morning.)

Please submit your application at the Application Post, or by emailing fandomgrammar@gmail.com. If you have any questions about the process or the responsibilities of Fandom Grammarians, please submit those questions here.

Answer: What is the difference between "lead" and "led"?

Question: What is the difference between "lead" and "led"?

Those darn homophones! They sound alike but their respective meanings are so completely different, that if you mistake one for the other, your beautifully constructed phrase misses the point completely.

To avoid catastrophe, you must examine your usage of the verb. When conjugating the past tense, make sure you're not referring to the metal.
