"There is no such thing as 'bloglish'"
In case you were worried about the impact of blogs on the English language, the Telegraph reports that Oxford University Press lexicographers have found that "there is no such thing as 'bloglish'." If that's the good news, the other news is that "the top 15 most frequently used words are: blogger, blog, s---, oh, yeah, stupid, post, ok, stuff, lovely, myself, update, nice, me and my." Hat tip. Oh, my -- if this blog and blogger have not done our share of contributing to the supremacy of this lovely list of words, perhaps this stupid post will do a nice job of it. Ok? Update: don't blame me, but, yeah, this stuff reads like s---, if I must say so myself.
