    No, he said ''a monster'' so the middle is either '' monste'' or ''monst'' or ''ons'' or ''n''.

    I'm afraid you asked what is in the middle of ''a monster'' so the answer is clearly ''n'' .

    You're all wrong. The question itself was ungrammatical and hence meaningless. The original poster needs to figure out the difference between the use and mention of a word. Note: When mentioning a word, you need to enclose the word in single quotation marks. For instance the word 'word' has four letters.

    Google for the phrase ''Eats shoots and leaves''. Then do the little quiz. I bet you're 100% stickler, you heinous grammar fiend. (I'm proud to say I'm only 92% stickler.)

    Yes I am a heinous grammar fiend, as well as a member of the (defunct, alas, yet poised to rise Pheonix-like) Militant Grammarians of Massachusetts (local chapter). You will know us by the markings of our pens (red, stringent).
