Hello world!

September 2, 2011

My blog starts here. It will contain all my subtle but trenchant views about the English language. Expect posts on the words ‘laconic’, ‘deprecate’ and ‘refute’, on the new meaning of the expression ‘to be fair’, on the use and misuse of non-sexist language, on apostrophes, on the double past conditional in phrases like ‘he would have liked to have made himself a cup of coffee’, on split infinitives (warning: I don’t mind them), on the difference between ‘ass’ and ‘arse’ and many, many more!
