Yooper Bars -- A Book About Michigan's Upper Peninsula Bars

Posted on April 7, 2011 at 9:41am 2 Comments

For those non-trolls looking to tie one on, Yooper Bars is a book in progress that you might find interesting. Their preview spread of The Merchant's Bar in the UP looks great and offers a short writeup for each bar, bar stats (e.g., "Canadian Currency Welcome"), bar history, photos, drinks offered, and few pieces of trivia like "The quantity of peanuts served annually…

You know, nations divide over things like this. I changed my theme, but I'm not happy about it, Mr. Hitl— um, I mean, Mr. Thompson.

Whoa, take it easy! I presented that little ditty as support for both our positions. I was not implying you were wrong. ;)

Here's the full story, if you really want to know. Terribly interesting stuff.

merriam-webster.com:
Sir Thomas More is the first writer known to have used both infer and imply in their approved senses (1528). He is also the first to have used infer in a sense close in meaning to imply (1533). Both of these uses of infer coexisted without comment until some time around the end of World War I. Since then, senses 3 and 4 of infer have been frequently condemned as an undesirable blurring of a useful distinction. The actual blurring has been done by the commentators. Sense 3, descended from More's use of 1533, does not occur with a personal subject. When objections arose, they were to a use with a personal subject (now sense 4). Since dictionaries did not recognize this use specifically, the objectors assumed that sense 3 was the one they found illogical, even though it had been in respectable use for four centuries. The actual usage condemned was a spoken one never used in logical discourse. At present sense 4 is found in print chiefly in letters to the editor and other informal prose, not in serious intellectual writing. The controversy over sense 4 has apparently reduced the frequency of use of sense 3.

Alright, Mr. Pickypants... back atcha: "implying" not "inferring."
