I'm so delighted by the way linguistic evolution looks in the modern era (with rapid cultural variation/dissemination facilitated via the internet, and yet norms are being perpetuated far longer now than they would have been before widespread communications technology). I'm not really researchy-into it, but there's moments where the differences get really blatant and it's fascinating.I find the usage creep quite an interesting aspect. It is, at least, a result of the non-organization of the field. It's propelled almost entirely by amateurs and pop culture media.
