The English Language

December 28, 2007

I know only 3 people will read this but what the hell is wrong with our English language? I didn’t major in English, nor do I claim to be semi-educated on proper grammar, in fact, I had poor grammar in elementary school, but I’ve have something to say about the fact that practically any word can be changed to a verb by adding “able” to the end.

My case in point, MSN.com has a headline today that says, “2007’s most hateable people and teams.” What about “most hated?” Can’t that work. Another example I hear is “personable.” Is it to much to say, “Joe has a good personality,” or “Joe is a friendly guy?”

Speak with dignity and authority.
