comment The times are a-changing? Why a-?
Well, yeah, I'm not saying that the great Bob Dylan was just choosing words at random :D His choices here are certainly emphatic, they make you stop and listen to the ideas presented with new ears. And maybe there's a sense in which the archaic phrasing of "a-changing" reminds you that, just as our use of language has changed, so the world has changed along with it.

comment If enough people say “supposably” instead of “supposedly”
@res: yes, but "assume" and "presume" are so close in sound and meaning and aren't (I think) differently transitive: surely "presumably" only sounds more correct to me because it's more commonly used?
