The Curmudgeons are Alright
I have always been a language curmudgeon. I’ve always taken the elitist view that people ought to be able to speak at least one language correctly, and have found myself immoderately angry when they do not. Misplaced apostrophes make me froth at the mouth. Reading that a play will be staged “thru” such-and-such a date gives me palpitations.
