Stephen Fry on Grammar Nazis [Video]

25 Oct 2010

Australian artist and animator Matt Rogers has taken a recording of Stephen Fry‘s essay on language and translated it into one of those fancy schmancy kinetic typography videos. Listen as Fry lays the smackdown on English language pedantry and grammar nazism — an increasingly prevalent trend in the linguistic cesspool that is the Internet.

There is no right language or wrong language any more than there are right or wrong clothes. Context, convention, and circumstance are all.
