Tonight we will release the 500th episode of the Grammar Girl podcast. It took more than nine years, lots of work, and lots of help to get here, and it seems like a great time to look back and consider the 10 most heard episodes of all time. Not surprisingly, half of them cover commonly confused words:
Episode 121: 'Affect' Versus 'Effect'
Episode 177: Noah Webster's Dream
Episode 37: 'Lay' Versus 'Lie'
Episode 259: First, Second, and Third Person
Episode 232: Active Voice and Passive Voice
Episode 211: Top 10 Grammar Myths
Episode 218: 'Further' Versus 'Farther'
Episode 202: When to Use 'Nor'
Episode 219: 'Bad' Versus 'Badly'
Episode 285: 'Moot' Versus 'Mute'
I had to include number 11 as a bonus because it seemed so different from all the others:
Episode 434: The Made-Up Swear Words of 'The Maze Runner'
Finally, here are some of the top Grammar Girl photo highlights from over the years!
