Prufrock is back both as a three times a week newsletter (sign up here) and a weekly column (linked here). I have always found something interesting in what Micah Mattix finds interesting. From the first of the new newsletter:
Michael M. Rosen reviews a new history of the English language, focusing on its bizarre rules: “If you’re curious about why we say Woe is me (instead of Woe am I), why we egg people on, why colonel is pronounced kernel, why multiple moose aren’t meese, and how come we say how come, this is the book for you. It’s also skillfully and charmingly illustrated by Sean O’Neill, Okrent’s frequent collaborator.”
