News in Pictures October 16 October 22
Contest Directions: Create images of something that happened in the news from October 16, 2006 through October 22, 2006.
An example of a recent news story that could be used can be found here: October 16, 1758 hardly seems like a current event but this date marks the birthday of the great man of dictionary fame, Noah Webster. Where would we be today without this great American. Mr. Noah Webster is probably the only American ever born who knew when to use 'who' and 'whom'. He was so confident in his ability to know the difference he wrote a book about it. As good as he was, he was terrible at identifying animals. I have an old "Webster's Dictionary" that was printed in 1894. Poor old Noah couldn't tell the difference between a chimpanzee and an orangutan. In fact he thought an orangutan was an orang-outang. This is the man that also included etymologies in his book. For those of you who/whom don't own one of his books, etymology is the history of a word. I guess history changes from time to time. I still don't know when to use who or whom. I looked it up in his book. It says whom is the object of who. That's a good question. Who is the object of what? I'd say Noah Webster was more confused than I am at this moment.
