Dropped Gs

Next time you notice Sarah Palin "drop a G"—read this post from Language Log. And start listenin' to the way you talk, cuz you're droppin' Gs, too—and you're doing it just as tactically as Palin is!

(Wouldn't it be great if linguistics were taught in high schools?)


Coda: More on the etymology of -ing in a more recent Language Log post here.

In the late stages, I'm pleased to note, McCain seems to be Palin in comparison to Obama.
