comment Do publishers really need to translate between UK and US English?
Actually, if a friend asked you to "knock up" his girlfriend in the US, he's looking to get her pregnant.

Sorry for lagging in my response--been wicked busy--but I wanted to clarify something. What do you think about naming parts and chapters? Is that taking it too far? Are too many threads getting crossed?

I agree about the damaging effect chapter titles can have. It surprises me that Twain would go so far as to list key words to each chapter in the TOC of Huck Finn. I do, however, enjoy single word chapter titles that are based on a salient image from the chapter.

comment Possible interactions of punctuation marks with the word “however” in a novel
Please add the entirety of the clause before the semicolon. A semicolon does a few things. See this excellent and humorous explanation of semicolon use.
