About the Author

Susan J. Behrens is Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Marymount Manhattan College, and an associate of the Institute for Writing and Thinking at Bard College. She is co-editor of Language in the Real World with Judith A. Parker (Routledge, 2010).


"Behren's book clearly shows that the study of language should not be a 'joyless censoriousness' (Dick Veit's expression) but an inquiry into language questions we encounter daily in writing, ranging from syntactic issues to punctuation concerns... [Her] linguistic training is evident throughout." - The ATEG Journal
