Here's a couple of follow-ups to recent stories featured on this blog.
For starters, this is a comment piece by Bob Nicholson in The Guardian which looks at how Victorian English took in American slang, and how the Americanisation of English is hardly a recent phenomenon.
Then there's this piece by Belinda Webb, also from The Guardian, that takes a look at reactions to slang. It's not a particularly brilliant article as the writer appears to confuse dialect and slang, but it's an intervention in the debate about language, so worth a look.
Finally, there's this article about Queen's English Society arch-pedant, Bernard Lamb in last month's Times Higher.
