  1. Respectful of the erudition of your learned responders, I confess my response is based, not so much on my specific knowledge of gammar or of the authors mentioned, but on being the daughter of said “older brother”. At home we did not so much discuss language as speak it. And I will confess that I have become more like my father every year. As a nurse, I have always worked with people of diverse backgrounds. I’ve yet to meet any co-worker who talks about presenting a new word from the dictionary at each dinner – or a new French word, my mother’s passion. But, I got the message. While I “listen” within the “community of understanding” it remains a struggle for me to speak with such community. I am aware of the need to modify my style of expression or choice of words, as I do want to make myself understood,but I adhere to whatever the “rules” were that were so imbedded. Certainly history proves that language changes. I hope I have made appropriate accommodations. And I continue my father’s legacy of annoyance at many of those changes. As he once said when a bank teller suggested he “have a nice day” – “Nobody is going to tell me what kind of day to have.”

  2. I like the blue theme actually. Makes it easier to read. 🙂
