Stephen Fry takes on language pedants

I confess, I love language. I love grammar. I enjoy well-written prose that demonstrates creative elegance while still conforming to the rules.

Even so, Stephen Fry truly nails it here in a rebuttal to people who are far worse than I am (I think).

    I wanted to do a piece on how I love language, tend to be a slight grammar nerd, but how I’m not going to go through my blog and make it grammar perfect. I am just going to let the words flow as they may.

    This is a great post, from a great blog, and Stephen Fry’s views on language is spot on!


Ya think?
