Subject: Re: one as a pronoun?
I hate the pronoun "one" myself, and I often discourage my students from
using it. I will use it from time to time, but almost always in a
hyperformal tone where I'm trying to be sardonic or ironic, and I'm
usually told to take a tonic. Used seriously, it's just not right.
