Can we speak "a lot kinds of things" in English?

What an idiotic comment! Descriptivists aren't told what to think nor do they tell others what they must and mustn't do as regards language.

That is the province of prescriptivists like you. That was the sum total of your peeves threads - a bunch of dolts spreading lies that they had heard about language, with not an original thought from the lot, certainly not from you.


Let me remind you JTT, that your descriptive language is mostly not your original thoughts.

I suggest you to list 10 examples of McTag's "silly lies" on English language here. Keep in mind: No evidence to stand, no right to spout.

McTag the language doofus, repeating the nonsense his ignorant parents saddled him with.


This is like the braying of a donkey. A howler monkey?

JTT demonstrates the depth of his argument, and his lack of manners and class.

Some of us are closer to the source than others.

@oristarA,
I wondered why you were defending McTag, despite your knowing he can only "give little clues", Ori. You were one of those very people taking part in the silly pet peeves thread.

Finally, a wee bit of honesty from Contrex. You do seem to have great difficulty addressing the language issues. McTag and Jack, too.
