Red Marker Blogathon Update 3
Folks! I love your posts, keep them coming.
And the links, oh god, such hilarious links to non-RMB posts. My favourite has to be Kalai on the mispronunciation of names.
Then, we have our first dissenter: MiM disapproves of such activism and calls on you to say Shoo to the Sue. (I know, it's a bit of a tongue twister after a 'happy' Saturday night.) Go agree or disagree. And if you're Dipali, feel free to pun on my poor, mistreated nickname. Not that she needs permission, that one.
Ughsome objects to illegal linguistic couplings (linguistic adultery?).
Itchy reverts back, literally, with tales of loins and ferocious dogs.
R's Mom learns to distinguish between babies and babas. Dude, did you know we Bongs call our dads Baba? Just to confuse you even more.
Momo's Ma gets confused over the vagaries of English as adopted by various communities.
I think that's all for today but if you've left me a link and you find I haven't posted it, please mail it to me directly. I'm waiting for permission for one more link (I'm not sure the blogger posted for RMB exactly) and so far I haven't seen anything I'm not happy to include, so if your link isn't here it's only by mistook.
It's a peaceful Sunday in my part of the world. Hope you are having a good one too.

Mispronunciation gets Prashanti's goat.
