Talking proper

Lynne Truss’ war against everyone from Americans to teenagers to green grocers is a short sighted belligerent war on those-too-stupid to use the apostrophe or spell correctly. When, in fact, language changes so rapidly, to try and pin it to a set of rules is lunacy, and if these rules exist, who decided Truss was the one to make them?

Culture Wars was included in creativetourists’ Top 25 UK Arts & Culture Blogs 2009.
