Default Re: Top 10 Misused Words

I don't think many of the 'fusty farts' would argue with Stephen Fry at all. I think they would acknowledge that the English language is far from being in decline but constantly evolving. I just think it's a general frustration at the lack of grammar that is on display everywhere that brings out the inner pedant.
