Bonjour tout le monde !
Full disclosure: I strive to balance my descriptive/prescriptive scale, but I am prone to the prescriptive. Shamelessly.
This site looks like a great tool to observe commonly accepted idiomatic expressions in this ever-changing bastard child of a language. I speak a pretty common middle American English with some influences from the South, and I am also fluent in Continental and Québécois French.
Foreign languages and linguistics are my passion (B.A. McGill 2008), and I have a heavy background in Latin (caveat emptor) as well as working competencies in Italian, Spanish, and German.
While teaching is my vocation, I'm taking a break from it now to work on my Master's, and I work full time as a phone monkey for [international corporation] in a call center. This delightful job gives me a great sampling of language usages, and I am eager to share and learn.
I also enjoy long walks on the beach and foreign films.
