Anger management for wordies

From the Language Log blog:

Language Anger Management

Do you find yourself shouting back to the radio when speakers say “less” when every educated and reasonable citizen knows full well that the right word is “fewer?” Does it drive you to distraction when an older adult tries to use teenage slang? Are you sick and tired of misuses of passives? If these and other language issues make you furious, you may need some help with your anger. You can probably benefit from the Language Log on-line seminars in language anger management.
