Why do they let the grammatical and spelling heresies of writers like Jane Austen Dickens Shakespeare Milton or the Brontes pass without the same outrage and criticism that they reserve for the regular civilian? Why is the average person illogical and killing English if they use something like shall or will incorrectly when those writers are not? I always wondered and I never understood either how they couldn't see that English is a living thing a constantly shifting and evolving beast as opposed to something static Look at how hugely different Anglo Saxon is to Middle English then at how different that is to Renaissance English and then again to Victorian English Nor why could they not see how language is sometimes progressive? One example is how I've often naturally used they instead of writing he or she to avoid being sexist one way or the other even though it's incorrect English to the pedants Is that not progressive
