Sentence Sense Online

An Introduction to the Authors

The writer of the online version of Sentence Sense is Evelyn Farbman, Professor of English at Capital Community College in Hartford, Connecticut. Farbman is author of two hard-copy texts, Signals: A Grammar and Guide for Writers (1985) and Sentence Sense: A Writer's Guide (1989), both published by Houghton-Mifflin. In addition to teaching courses in writing, Farbman teaches English as a Second Language and literature classes, with a special interest in African-American Literature. Evelyn Farbman holds degrees from Cornell University and the University of Western Ontario.

Farbman's colleague, Professor of English Charles Darling, is responsible for putting Sentence Sense on the World Wide Web and for modifying the javascript and cgi-based scripts that make the interactive material operational. In June of 2000, Darling was awarded the college's Certificate of Merit for Educational Excellence and Distinguished Service. Darling became interested in the academic use of the computer—especially the Internet—several years ago and has since become the Webmaster at Capital Community College. His own Guide to Grammar and Writing is an internationally acclaimed online resource for writers. Darling has a B.A. from the College of Wooster, an M.A. from Washington University, and a Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut.
