As a wise man once said, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. And it's particularly dangerous in the mind of an amateur grammarian.
One of my favorite columnists, Paul Mulshine, weighed in on word origins and interrupted infinitives this week.
Interestingly, a little Google action on some of the terms in the above article linked me quickly back to Steve Schroeder's blog, where he once issued a position quite similar to Mulshine's.
I need to get over to SPOGG and verify their take on these critical issues...
