I offer editing, proofreading, and scoping services. I hold a bachelor of arts degree in linguistics, and I am a graduate of Internet Scoping School.
Because I polish prose and deliver error-free transcripts, you are able to focus on writing. My background in linguistics and scoping has taught me the importance of grammar and punctuation. Take, for example, the following two sentences:
- The portrait that was hanging in the den was stolen.
- The portrait, which was hanging in the den, was stolen.
In the first example, the one portrait hanging in the den was stolen. While in the second example, one of the many portraits hanging in the den was stolen. “That” limits the subject, whereas “which” does not.
Since writing is imprinted, a writer must rely on proper grammar and punctuation to get his/her message across to the reader the first time through.
Tell me about your project. I’d love to have a word with you.
