Snuckward Ho!

It’s been a week alternately stressful and just plain busy, so I’m copping out with another Language Log Link (or a triple-L, as well call it in the blogging game).

I think you can look at the graphs they’ve put together, showing the trends in “sneaked” versus “snuck” from various sources and determine whether you are a descriptivist or prescripitivist.  If you say “Huh.  I guess I can say ‘snuck’ now, and you know, why not indeed?” – descriptivist.  If you recoil in horror and begin composing a letter to the Gaurdian – prescriptivist.
