Pajama prescriptivism

For some reason, I am incredibly intolerant when it comes to the misuse of English by people who are not me. I mean I. People who are not I. (I make mistakes, and so feel free to point them out). But of course it's rude to say anything, and I try not to act too pedantic in public. So I have decided to let this be an outlet for all of my grammatical intolerance.

Why "Subjunctivist"? English's subjunctive mood is dying, and I thought it needed a defender. That, and "Pajama Prescriptivist" was too long.

Stay tuned for some of the most boring, academic pedantry on the web.
