The “Word Crimes” song – does grammar matter?

Wierd Weird Al” Yankovic’s song about English grammar is actually quite good, and it will appeal to many Technical Authors.

It’s important that someone’s message is communicated clearly, and grammar can help achieve that goal. However, the English language is always evolving. Rules change over time, and people should never be too pedantic.

What do you think?

Maybe the English language is always evolving because there aren’t enough pedants like Weird Al and me correcting people! By the way, you spelt “weird” incorrectly at the start of this post.
