They just don't respect punctuation in England any more

| No Comments

The wimps at Oxford have made their Shorter English Dictionary slightly shorter by dropping most of the hyphens from compound nouns. I'd get all bent out of shape about it, but it's not a surprise. The Brits have been minimizing their use of punctuation for years, dropping apostrophes from possessives and periods from abbreviations. Do they think they're saving electrons?
