Flaming English used to make points about English grammar, punctuation and usage but now features humorous, sometimes satirical, verses
A warm welcome from Anna Nolan (England)
The main aim of this website is to reach you through my blog, Flaming English, in which I used to indulge my passion for English grammar, punctuation and usage – albeit trying to approach the subject in a light-hearted way. With a penchant for irreverent satire and humorous ditties, however, I am now posting jocular, sometimes satirical, rhymes.
After working as a teacher of English in Poland and then broadcaster at the Polish Section of the BBC (in Britain, of course), I spent many years running public examinations, developing national qualifications, carrying out linguistic research, copy editing and penning articles and books on English grammar, punctuation and usage. I hope that Flaming English will earn the ultimate accolade of being worthy of your attention – and raise a smile (or two).
