    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (673 KB)  

    This column is intended as a commentary on the current commotions in the English language, with particular emphasis on the usages of our own technical community. Because few who care about the language are neutral, it will probably be seen as a laudable effort, badly misinformed, stunningly correct, dead wrong, essential, or trivia! Comments, commendations, and condemnations will be accepted. Readers' pet peeves are of particular interest. View full abstract»
