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 'klutz' is a clumsy person who trips a lot and/or drops things.
-Dad is such a klutz!
-Yeah, he broke Mom's favorite vase!
