Description

This article is from the alt.usage.english FAQ, by Mark Israel misrael@scripps.edu with numerous contributions by others.

01 Welcome to alt.usage.english!

alt.usage.english is a newsgroup where we discuss the English

how particular words, phrases, and syntactic forms are used; how
they originated; and where in the English-speaking world they're

alt.usage.english is for everyone, *not* only for linguists,
native speakers, or descriptivists.
