More branching out
I found another blog that looks promising: The Language Guy.
It's run by Mike Geis, who writes: "I switched my focus from theoretical linguistics to more humanistic pursuits, applying what I had learned as a theortical linguist to such areas as advertising, politics, journalism, the law, and conversation."
Already, he's written about "up to" and "more for less" claims in ads, a pet peeve ("refute" being used instead of "rebut"), and neologisms.
So far, it's been good reading.
