Harvard’s Steven Pinker sets the record straight.
Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.businessinsider.com
This is a great article that goes over some basic grammatical misnomers that are often made. Many of these are not only covered in Steven Pinker’s writings, but Marcia Riefer Johnston also writes about these and other similar topics in her book, "Word Up!"
The author of this article also references H.W. Fowler, who was the author of "The Dictionary of Modern Usage", which was the first book of its kind that I used. I found it helpful on many occasions.
I’ll have to check out more of Steven Pinker’s works in the near future.
