Here's a site for all you grammar- thusiasts to enjoy! Good old Bristol Uni!
Beware! The exercises are a bit addictive!

Oooh, Frankie! For those of us who don't have English as a first language, this is wonderful! I know I have blackspots. I've been playing already and this is saved as a favourite. Punctuation is a particular nuance in each language - French and Spanish value lots of exclamations to emote, Gaelic builds up superlatives by adding description in layers - looking like run-on sentences if translated literally.

I love this!

I've glanced but not focused. I suspect it will be confusing for us poor Yanks. Having had British clients, I know a lot of the punctuation is different (that and the choice of prepositions were the biggest causes of constant rewrites when writing briefs). Nonetheless, it looks interesting and thanks Frankie for posting it.

You also get a lot of use out of Grammar Girl (American this time):

http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/

I am always using it at work. When someone calls in the grammar police (usually me and a couple of other colleagues), I can often find a grammar girl page to explain the principle better and more thoroughly than I have time to do. Like collective nouns, a problem that I hear come up all the time. Even on National Public Radio!
