  •  I would amend this only slightly in re usage: (3+ / 0-)

    the claim that any particular form is the "correct" one and that other forms are "wrong" is at best, a thoroughly subjective value judgement
    I would say: the claim any particular regularly used form is the correct one and that other regularly used forms are wrong.

    There may be more than one correct usage.  This does not mean that there is no such thing as an incorrect usage.  If nobody knows what you mean, you're saying it wrong.

    (The spelling "mike" is still alive and well in some circles, so far as I am aware.  This does not invalidate the spelling "mic", nor vice versa.)
