Write, please, for the Sound-Sex of It

Thank you Stephen Fry (via @rolliewillams ) for loving words enough to make (and share) a 6-plus minute video even a videophobe like me can love.

While Fry and many others have built a reputation on the stern-English-teacher sort of language admonitions it's not because we/they hate the errant use of words. It's because we/they love language. Because it communicates, punctuates, invigorates, and to do so sometimes it must innovate. Itself.

So there.

Write on, modern language-screwups, write on.
