The Age of Prescriptivism

Last week, at the symposium  The Effects of Prescriptivism in Language History organised at the University of Leiden Centre for Linguistics by Gijsbert Rutten and Marijke van der Wal, I presented a paper called The Age of Prescriptivism. For the paper I was able to draw on input from the readers of this blog, particularly on questions about irregular verbs which I put and on the discussion about drownded: I’m grateful to you all for your comments! If you are interested, you may find the presentation here: The Age of Prescriptivism; comments will be welcome. (There was also a handout, though with references only.)
