Love of Words

Short post today. I’ll give you naught but a video that has been winding it’s way through the internet, since it is so much in line with the way I think about the English language; its flexibility is its strength. And if you haven’t listened to Stephen Fry before, he’s really a magnetic personality. In this video he really sticks it to people who think that they’re the guardians of English grammar and constantly correct other people’s usage.

Although he’s wrong about people who say “less” when they mean “fewer.” Those barbarians are no better than animals.
