Olde tyme lexicide: “Against Singular Ye”

The perversions the youth wreak upon our our shared language grate on the ear and distract from semantic content. While most of their petty acts of verbal vandalism are limited to the realm of vocabulary where they do little lasting damage, it is now the very foundation of our language that is under threat. I speak, of course, of a recent assault on our grammar, that of so-called “singular ye”.

If you like Lexicide (and I know you do), you will love this rante most exercifed on Jeff Kaufman’s blog. Just goes to show that there is nothing new under the sun.
