I know that English is a living language and we cannot keep it from changing. But is there some way to squelch some of the most egregious linguistic innovations? Why has the word “unbelievable” changed from its previous definition to now mean something like “amazing”? It seems to me that Brian Williams started it, or at least he is the major perpetrator. I cringe every time I hear him say something is unbelievable when he obviously believes it. I suppose we must just suffer with indignation.
