I love analyzing my native language, American English, and helping non-native speakers make sense of it. I've been doing this for fun with friends who speak English as a second language for nearly 30 years. I would like to first thank A.D., C.F. and E.A., and now P.G., for inspiring me to finally write this stuff down!

A 'tear-jerker' is usually movie or tv show that causes you to suddenly cry.
-Have you seen the new Meryl Streep movie?
-Not yet, but I heard it's a real tear-jerker!
