    When you're a grammarian, people react to you in interesting — and sometimes downright strange — ways. An elderly man once asked me about something that had puzzled him for eight decades: Why did his church, St. Paul’s, include an apostrophe in its name? My nephew recently called to inquire whether his company’s sign in Times Square should include a semicolon. (I said no, though the notion of a two-story-tall neon semicolon was tempting.) Lots of people become tongue-tied, sure that I'll judge their choice of who or whom. (They worry needlessly, because I consider myself off-duty when I’m not teaching or writing.)
