Entry: Strunk & White debunked? Feb 22, 2005



Those of us interested in linguistics might want to check out Language Log, an interesting and enlightening group blog.

I was especially interested in one linguist's view of  The Elements of Style being "a horrid little compendium of unmotivated prejudices (don't use ongoing), arbitrary stipulations (don't begin a sentence with however), and fatuous advice ("Be clear")".

Seeing that we (sometimes blindly) regard the book as one of our bibles, it is nice to hear an opposite point of view.

See these Language Log posts for the full story:
