I don’t usually waste time on Web quizzes (those things that ask you a bunch of questions and then tell you what Lord of the Rings character you are), because most of them strike me as silly, pointless, or contrived. But today I stumbled across one that I had to take: How Grammatically Sound Are You? As a professional writer, I couldn’t very well refuse that challenge. Fortunately, I did well:
You are a GRAMMAR GOD!
If your mission in life is not already to
preserve the English tongue, it should be.
Congratulations and thank you!
How grammatically sound are you?

Woohoo! So, as a Grammar God, do I now have the power to smite people who use “it’s” as a possessive, or think “that” and “which” are interchangeable?
