A lesson in grammar and life

Evelyn Solomonov may have relished the irony of the fact that her obituary was written by someone who she taught to love grammar.

She would have been less amused at the use of passive voice in the second part of that sentence, bristled at the misuse of “who” instead of “whom,” and questioned the word choice of “irony,” which doesn’t precisely describe the situation.

Solomonov, who died on September 14 at the age of 68, was a well-known figure in Kfar Saba, where she taught English at the Herzog School for 20 years.
