Corrections to the Record

It is now time for me to make a (albeit minor) correction to the record. I had (as so clearly pointed out by the NAP from ALiberalDose) not only abused, but misused the word hyperbole.

The kind professors at the Language Log carefully point out that hyperbole is used to extend in exaggeration. Now, thankfully, they weren’t actually talking about this blog in their post, but far be it from me to not acknowledge the error of my ways. Clearly my use of the word was not an extension of the point.
I want to thank the kind professors at the Language Log for continuously enlightening and brightening my blog-reading day.

I want to continue to encourage all four of you, dear readers, to visit regularly the Language Log.


One thought on “Corrections to the Record

  1. the language log is boring…I want to read edgy arguements…I am surrounded by English profs/teachers – blah! I know when to use effect and affect. I am not interested in reading rhetoric of the English language. I sometimes need light and fluffy or deep and sensual but never boring.
