All the English You Will Ever Need

The English language is constantly evolving, both the words we use and the rules that control the usage of those words.  Therefore, it is impossible to ever have a definitive grammar guide, or, if you will, a Complete Guide of American English.  And that’s our excuse.

 

 

Word of the Every So Often

December 14, 2018 

albedo:  (noun)  the light reflected off a surface, usually that of a planet or moon, measured on a scale of zero to one, zero being completely non-reflective (such as black), and one being completely reflective (such as a mirror).  Sir, we're going to have to ask you to put on your hat.  The albedo off of your head is disturbing the other fans.

Nothing wrong with Seven Birnbaum's art work.  He really does make interesting clocks.  It's his grammar.  "Media" is already plural.  "Medium" is singular.  You can mix media, you can work in a particular medium, but you cannot "mix medias."  It's a bit like saying you saw two deers.
