If you are a lover of language and ever would like to brush up your grammar skills, I highly recommend looking into the art of sentence diagramming. I find myself, when writing or speaking or laying in bed thinking, imagining how my thoughts/words would be diagrammed. Though this can sometimes prove distracting, thorough (and I mean THOROUGH) understanding of American Standard English is an excellent tool to have and use.
