comment “That was me” vs. “That was I”
This may go the way of the WHO/WHOM distinction...and I think the rule that "if it don't sound right,it ain't right" should apply. Imagine knocking on a door and responding to "Who is it?" with "I".

comment The expression “not so much”
Shakespeare coined "all of a sudden".The "by" and "large" are of nautical origin.It has always fascinated me-the etymology of our most commonly used words and phrases.

comment The expression “not so much”
When I hear "so much",I am drawn back to the word that "much" is intended to modify,and I see/hear "smart". Much smart has an incorrect ring to it.

The correct grammar would be "Jim is smart.His brother,not AS smart."

comment Etymology of “Buffalo, New York”
Thank you,Jay.I was hoping you wouldn't say it was a slam dunk from "beau fleuve",which I once believed with certainty.Mark Twain once quipped that it was called "Buffalo" because there weren't any buffalo to be seen.
