On Friday night’s Graham Norton Show there was fascinating intercghange between will.i.am and Miriam Margoyles.
Margoyles kept telling off will.i.am for misusing the word “like”. OK as a verb, she said, but not as a substitute for “said”, for example: “He was like, why have you come here?”
I disagree with Margoyles. The English language is great because it has evolved enormously over the years. The language should reflect how people use it, not text books. Long may that continue.Tweet
