A very timely piece on Dutch “literally”

Thank you, Ewoud Sanders, for choosing to write on Dutch literally just this weekend. A very welcome piece for my comparative paper on the English, Dutch and German usage guide traditions later this week. We’ve written on this topic (from an English perspective) several times in this blog, and in my Augsburg paper (spoiler alert!) I argue that it is time for us to take up Robert Ilson’s suggestion for a project on cross-cultural prescriptivism. It’s definitely time for it!
