Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.


Is There a Word for That?

"Despite the best efforts of Samuel Johnson, Jonathan Swift, et al., there has never been a governing body that approves “correct” English. Unlike French, say, or Japanese, English is an open-source language. Anyone is free to suggest new words or phrases. The only criterion for their success is that users adopt them." And that's why I persist in using 'alright' instead of 'all right'. Alright? #link
