Here come the Grammar Police
Any votes on what grammatical error this BC comic strip (via Language Log) is referring to?
There are four theories at Language Log:
- It should be "We are the people" (copula deletion)
- It should be "Us the people"
- It should be "We, the people"
- It should be "We the persons"
Language Log has a good rundown of why none of them work. (And, yes, numerous insults to Strunk and White are made in the process.)
