Under-Definite Articulation

Samuel Klein recently complained about people who refer to Wikipedia with “over-definite articulation.” In other words, “the Wikipedia” rather than just “Wikipedia.” SJ pleads, “Please fight for justice in nomenclature, and save us all from grammatical confusion and disorder.”    (M0P)

Hear, hear, SJ. I have to deal with a similar problem here in the Bay Area: Silly Northern Californians who refer to the local freeways with under-definite articulation. People, it’s the 101. Get it right.    (M0Q)
