For Who the Bell Tolls

David Marsh

Marsh, the production editor of the Guardian, is on a quest for grammatical perfection. Forty years in journalism, or, as he describes it, messing about with other people’s words to make them read better, Marsh applies a light-hearted touch to heavy duty subjects: grammar, language and usage. Marsh is stickler for rules, but when ‘for who’ sticks out like a cucumber stuffed down a chippendale’s thong, ‘for whom’ will do just fine.
