Re: Creativity of the day

Well Reddit had no interest in this map I made but perhaps you all will find something interesting. I compiled all of the data myself from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. It took 2 weeks to hand color every county.

I'm currently working my way through a biography of Victoria Princess Royal, Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Empress of Prussia and mother of Wilhelm II. After I finish this book I am hoping to read one on Princess Victoria by Hesse and Rhine, Victoria Princess Royal's niece by her sister Alice. H...

Re: Transatlantic differences in the subjunctive

For me, the present subjunctive is fully productive, and it sounds odd to me when it is not used when expected. My view as well. Sometimes I might allow the indicative with "to have" but not "to be" and not any regular verbs. "It is important that he have all necessary documents." "It is important ...

Re: Transatlantic differences in the subjunctive

it is important that the supply exists. You are not the first Brit I've seen who didn't use the subjunctive in what would typically be a subjunctive phrase. One of my curriculum guides at school which comes from Switzerland and so I assume is written in British English is wrought with expressions l...

Re: The Innovative Usage Thread

Can we agree to stop saying "attorneys general," please? The plural is "attorney generals." I know that from a purely prescriptivist angle it doesn't make sense to add the plural to the adjective, but it's an unusual word with an adjective after the noun it describes and "attorney generals" is the g...

Re: What do you call this?

I would not call it a "wardrobe"; to me, that implies a piece of furniture with legs that is detached from the wall that you could move around and such. (also, "wardrobe" always makes me think of Chronicles of Narnia anyway) If it were in someone's bedroom and they stored clothes in it, I suppose I...
