“No language as depending on arbitrary use and custom can ever be permanently the same, but will always be in a mutable and fluctuating state; and what is deem’d polite and elegant in one age, may be accounted uncouth and barbarous in another.”
Simon Winchester, The Professor & the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity & the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary
