Banished From The English Language

The Second Essential Scary Truth

American English is one of the few languages that is still evolving.  Linguists call this ‘a language being alive’ although I prefer to see it as the superiority of the American Public Education System.

How, you may ask, does the American Public Education System impact the entirety of the language of the country when the average high school and college student speak in pigeon metaphor? Well, said impressments happens once a year when Lake Superior State University releases its list of Banished Words for the year of your lord 2009.

Does this list make American English spoken any cleaner when it comes to the grammatical fascists in the average fifth grade class?  No.  However, any group of language specialists that get rid of the phrase ‘going green’ has to be a set of linguistic heroes, at least to your intrepid blogger.
