Canadian, native English speaker, background in academic linguistics, lifelong reader, and language enthusiast.

In the prescriptive versus descriptive grammar debate, I'm mostly descriptivist but with an appreciation for the prescriptivist idea that something being "popular" usage doesn't mean it's correct.
