This is exciting! My first blog will be about language, but not in a “thou shall not” way, or a “I love words, me, but I’ll only talk about things that other people say that irritate me” manner. Po-faced pedants have had their sway too long. You won’t find them here. Linguistics is a science, dammit, not a pulpit. Appeals to household gods and half-remembered “grammar” lessons have nothing over research and reasoned arguments.
