My HotEL (History of the English Language) class is getting ready to start a section on Johnson’s Dictionary tomorrow, which is cool, because today would have been the Great Cham’s 308th birthday. Kudos to the folks at Google for making that the focus of today’s doodle.
Another point we’ve already hit in class is the variety of forms English can take, from regional dialects to creoles. However, I ran across one in an unexpected setting a few minutes ago, so I shared it with the kids, and now I share it with you.
Enjoy your day.
