Last Words

My favorite so far from this site:

Bouhours, Dominique (1628-1702)
“I am about to – or I am going to – die; either expression is used.”
Dominique Bouhours was a preeminent French Jesuit grammarian who worked endlessly to promote a high standard of correctness and purity in the French language.

Makes me think of Da Kine. Friggin Latin Boy.

  1. Except, ya know, the dead part

  2. How I love grammar so! For some reason, it reminds me of the time in ROTC when we had an assignment to write a short biography without using the passive voice. The APMS (Assistant Professor of Military Science) looked at me funny when I turned in a sheet with “My mother bore me on December 26th…” as the first line.

    If you don’t think that’s funny then you don’t like grammar.

  3. stop… grammar time !!!

  4. Alright, stop.
