Woe is I, this shit is pretty complicated. It literally makes my head spin.SumnerH said:No, it's stronger than that: if enough people fuck it up, then it's no longer a fuck up and you must "fuck it up" or you're wrong.
Language is meant to communicate; if the way people talk changes, the language changes.
Same deal with "thou" being used for singular and "you" for plural giving way once enough people started using "you" for both. At some point if you go around correcting people they're going to point out that nobody speaks like that anymore, and really you're the person who's out of touch with the language if you think "thou" is acceptable let alone that "you" isn't for the singular.
