New webinar tackles English grammar gremlins

NCRA’s Education Department has announced a new webinar titled English Grammar Gremlins: Ways to Conquer Them. Many speakers and writers will use the wrong word when they speak and write. This session offers a refresher course to help attendees correct these errors.

Led by Santo “Joe” Aurelio, Ed.D., FAPR, RDR, the webinar will embrace commonsense ways for attendees to learn and remember how to always speak and write using the correct word. The 90-minute seminar is on April 5 from 6-7:30 p.m. ET, at a cost of $99. Attendees can earn 0.15 CEU.

Aurelio was an official court reporter for 39 years. He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Harvard University and a doctorate in education from Boston University, and he now is a visiting professor at colleges in the Boston, Mass., area. He teaches a variety of subjects but mainly English grammar and medicolegal terminology.

Aurelio has written extensively on English grammar, Black English, Judeo-Christian religion, sexist language, classical art, discrimination, word etymology, adult basic education, Jewish and Italian immigration, legal terms, and mnemonics.

Aurelio spends most of his time teaching, engaging in research, and writing. He has four sons and lives with his wife of 50 years in Arlington, Mass.
