Default Dictionary Gives In

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...literally.html

I've talked about this repeatedly: dictionaries continually give in to misuses because no one can accept being wrong about anything. It always has to be someone else's fault.

The Oxford English Dictionary prides itself on reflecting the evolution of the English language.

It is a part of the Oxford University Press, which hit the bottom of the barrel years ago, with the publication of the Jewishly corrupted "Scofield Study Bible" version of the KJV. As they advertise their latest edition:
This augmentation (not revision) of the Scofield® Study Bible features the time-honored KJV translation and a wealth of new factual material that makes the ideas underlying the cofield's (sic) annotations clearer to modern readers.
Scofield is long dead, but the "new factual material" clarifying his fraudulent annotations continues to grow. I wonder why this venerated publishing house and its "respected" dictionary misspelled Scofield. Surely it can't be an innocent mistake.

Integration of schools was bad enough. Adding those grunts and squeaks to a White language must not be tolerated.

The 'Modern Websters' is notorious for caving in to popular misuse and abominable new, tribal noises too.
