I had a nasty migraine last night that kept me up for most of the night, and I’m not sure I have a real post in me.
In lieu of that, I have a linguistic issue I’d like to get off my chest: Misnomer does not mean “error” or “misconception”…it refers to an error in naming.
I’m sure my very smart and wonderful readers know this, but 3 times in the past two weeks I’ve heard people make this error. If you’re going to try to use big/unusual words, please use them accurately. Oh, and that also goes for phrases in Latin. Saying part of your argument in Latin doesn’t make you right.
