What is the phone number of the Grammar Hotline?(Miscellany)
There are many such. Of the two most prominent, one ("The National Grammar Hotline") is run by Michael Strumpf, Professor of English at Moorpark Community College, Moorpark, California, and author of _Painless, Perfect Grammar: Tips from the Grammar Hotline_ (Monarch, 1985, ISBN 0-671-52782-7). The phone number is (805) 378-1494; the hours are irregular, but he will return calls. The other ("The Write Line") is run by Richard Francis Tracz, Chairman of the English Department at Oakton Community College in Des Plaines, Illinois, and author of _Dr. Grammar's Writes from Wrongs: A supremely authoritative guide to the common and not-so- common rules of the English language_ (Vintage, 1991, ISBN 0-679-72715-9). The phone number is (708) 635-1948, and the hours are 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Central Time while classes are in session. His e-mail address is "firstname.lastname@example.org". In general, Prof. Strumpf gives more conservative advice than Prof. Tracz.
