Skype discussion with Ingrid Tieken-Boon van Ostade

We had a great discussion with Ingrid Tieken-Boon van Ostade (Leiden) in our seminar on “Bad Grammar” this week – from preposition stranding to Robert Lowth to Professor Tieken’s usage guides data base to prescriptivism as an area of linguistic inquiry and Geoffrey Pullum’s anniversary note┬áto Strunk and White. Four weeks to go until we will hold our end-of-semester symposium.
