Self-proclaimed ‘word nerd’ welcomes column on langauge

To the editor:

Jim Matthews could write a column about words every day, and it wouldn’t bore me to tears. His column was too short. More! More!

Surely, I’m not the only word nerd out here who would love a regular column dealing with our crazy English language. I’ve often wondered how anyone not exposed to it from childhood can ever master it well enough to function in this country.
