I listened to two TED Talks yesterday. As one who overdoes the “comma”, I am glad I’m not submitting anything to the New Yorker Magazine!! Mary Norris, Copy Editor with the New Yorker, is a tough cookie when it comes to grammar.
The second talk, by Ann Curzan, deals with changing times in the English Language, with new words and slang and ultimately comes down on the side of the true importance of a language being found in the ability to understand one another. Now that makes sense!
I haven’t posted in a few days so thought I’d include these two talks here. I hope you enjoy them.
See what you think.
