Yes, I am new here, too. I found the site quite by accident and wanted to join to get some feedback on a current problem of mine in the area of prescriptivist grammar, on the topic of subject-verb agreement as seen by the two adversarial positions of the notionalists and the formalists. I have posted an extensive question with background and examples with my post of "Ruxpin's Eyes" in the reviewing forum for nonfiction. I would appreciate any guidance the more knowledgeable members here might have toward finding sources that detail the problem I have outlined. Oh, I guess the purpose of this particular board is to introduce myself, so: I am working on the project of my lifetime, which is the life story of my g-g-grandfather. He went to the California Gold Rush, among other adventures, so his memoir is a previously unpublished primary source Gold Rush account, and therefore has some significant historical value. It is nearing completion, and would be finished if I had encountered more reliable help in the paid researcher field. I have been writing and/or editing for decades, and have plans to convert the Gold Rush story into a novel when the nonfiction piece is finished. Thanks for whatever help you folks can offer for my previously stated dilemma, and I hope to read and post more here.
