A change in my circumstances means that I shall no longer be sending out newsletters nor adding or updating pages on the site. See this message to subscribers for the reasons behind my decision.
The nearly 3,000 articles here on aspects of the growth and change of the English language have been built up over nearly 20 years of work. They should give you as many hours of browsing as you wish. Consult the index or search using the box in the right-hand column on every page.
There are many more articles on another site, my dictionary of affixes, in which I define and describe the many prefixes and suffixes in English.
