The above phrase roughly translates, "The abuse of anything does not abrogate the lawful use thereof." And after the word "love," the currently most abused word in the English language is "actually." Woken up out of bed early in the morning, it is put to hard labor all day carrying on tasks for which it was not hired until collapsing on its bed at night, exhausted and worn, barely able to say its night prayers and smarting from the abuse it had been put through during the day. That is why I am on a one man campaign to end the abuse of the word "actually." I am . . .
Believe me, I know my English is not perfect. Both on this blog and at the end of a homily people will let me know how I have managed to mangle Englishdom. Remember the problem I was having with effect and affect? This probably has more to do with me covering over my own inadequesies (such as in spelling) a kin to the middle aged man with a wife, five kids, and a dog who buys a two seated Porsche.
But the problem is pretty serious. People use the word so much they don't even hear it anymore or realize that they are saying it.
