I’m looking forward to this podcast – just found it today! It’s a bit nitpicky of me, but a pet peeve of mine is when Americans say “an historian.” In American English, it should be “a historian,” since we pronounce the “h” as a consonant sound, unlike Brits who pronounce it as a vowel. http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/a-versus-an?page=all
Welcome to Ben Franklin’s World, I am glad you found us. I love the Grammar Girl, I use her site a lot, but I prefer the pronunciation of an historian–perhaps it is my regional American dialect. I appreciate your pointing me and other readers to Mignon’s article because the question of a vs an historian comes often. I hope that my use of “an historian” won’t put you off from the show, but when I say “a historian” it doesn’t sound natural to me.
