Nonplussed & Bemused

2 posts in this topic

Yesterday, our "Editorial Emergency" duo of Simon Glickman and Julia Rubiner launched a salvoa gainst a common usage of the word nonplussed, a word they "wager more people get wrong than right." That opens an interesting can of worms: if a word or phrase used to have Meaning A, but more people now use it with Meaning B, is it time for the Meaning A folks to stand aside?
