The Word Blog rides again

Jan Freeman's The Word column has a companion blog (also available on sidebar!). It's up and running again. There are few mainstream writers on language who don't complain about usage and change and who don't make up rules and constraints based on whims. Tell anyone that you write about language and you're expected to point out desecration and degeneration.

Such complaints feed on and foster elitism and exclusion. It's a promise to judge everyone who doesn't learn the secret handshake. It pulls in the readers.

Read Freeman instead.
