Subject: Looking for some useful arguments


Can anyone suggest an argument that will convince copyeditors

(of whom I am one, but a somewhat atypical one) that we/they can't

decide to change the language, and neither can an ad agency or

the US congress, because there are a half billion speakers of English,

and we're only a few hundred people on the copyediting mailing list?
