I’ve been at it at least since 2011, but Fowler has finally been given an entry in the Oxford English Dictionary. And not just as a noun (n2, to be precise), but the adjectives Fowlereque and Fowlerian are included as well (all of them have been there since Sepetember 2017 already). That just leaves Fowlerish, but then I suppose you can’t have it all. This in any case calls for celebration: great job, OED!
