How to deal with questions on English grammar and usage

+6
−0

Languages & Linguistics has been getting some questions about relatively basic issues in the English language. There's nothing wrong with these questions as such, but they don't really fit the main purpose. Would it be worthwhile to create a new community for "English Language"? We could talk about disallowing such questions, but given the generally low level of traffic, that may be too drastic.

Summary: What's the best approach to questions about English grammar and usage: Disallow them? Give them a new home? Do nothing?
