Throwing Stones by Ammon Shea
Today I’m going to recommend this guest post on the blog over at Merriam-Webster.com. Ammon Shea does a fine job of pointing out the constant evolution of the English language and gives a warning to usage dictators everywhere in the process.
As an editor and a writer, I do appreciate a look into the way that words have changed throughout the ages. It gives me hope that with enough study I may one of these days be able to pen a historical novel and not flub it completely.
So without further ado: Throwing Stones by Ammon Shea.
