Our word maven Patricia T. O'Conner answers the question: What’s the opposite of “discombobulate”? (Yes there is one.) And she answers questions about English language and grammar. An updated and expanded third edition of her book, Woe is I: The Grammarphobe's Guide to Better English in Plain English, is available in paperback, as is Origins of the Specious, written with Stewart Kellerman.
