Hi Guys,

I am working on a paper and need some help. It addresses the rules of English grammar (especially rules for sentence formation, verb forms, etc) with special emphasis on the many exceptions English has to those rules.

I need some help compiling a list of all these exceptions as google doesn't turn anything up.

If you can think of any I would apreciate it.

Thanks,

Lex

Obviously 'google' is just one search engine.

Try http://www.altavista.com
et al.

This just scratches the surface but may give you a start:

Lexicon,

If this is an academic paper, try using Google Scholar [http://scholar.google.com] to search scholarly articles and journal articles and Google Books [http://books.google.com/books] to search books. A majority of the books are completely digitized and the text can be searched for the information you need.

Plan on sharing your findings here on ESL jobs forum?

Best,

Lee
