Kat Graham for Warner Bros. Portraits at Comic-Con 2014
teen wolf fandom actually made a petition for the cast and crew to stop “disrespecting the fans” lol remember that time you sent death threats to tyler posey because he said he doesn’t like stiles/derek and his mom saw them? or how you tried to make a petition to get shelley hennig off the show? or how meagan tandy has to constantly go on twitter to defend herself and her character because people send her hate? or how you all made #killallison a worldwide trend???? :)
Teen Wolf meets The Powerpuff Girls.
I have no idea what prompted this
To give credit where credit is due: Lydia’s belt is Alexander McQueen, her shoes and skirt are Zara, Erica’s jacket and Allison’s leggings are BCBG, and Erica’s shoes are Balenciaga.
As another note on fashion, no one over the age of five should ever wear white tights.
i adore how the flowers are in the background
The authority you need here to coin a word is gonna be a dictionary, and before we talk about how to get into one, we need to deconstruct the idea of what a dictionary is. Which may seem a little dumb, but I promise you, most lexicographers (dictionary-writers) have exactly the opposite view on language than people think they do.
Dictionaries are mostly used by prescriptivists, that is, people looking for the One True Spelling (or Meaning) of a particular word. The dictionary is correct and flawless and complete, and deviations from it are by definition (heh) wrong. Hence the idea that any word not in the dictionary is not a “real” word.
But dictonaries are mostly made by descriptivists. Rather than prescribing correct usages and spellings, lexicographers are describing the language as they find it. They take in thousands of examples of words in use, whether from well-established academic texts or from awesome pop song mashups, and try to write a definition that covers those usages. And since people are constantly using language in new ways, the dictionary is never complete and never totally correct.
Came across a blog with some nice, concise posts about language and linguistics. Check it out!
Repeating for emphasis: "And since people are constantly using language in new ways, the dictionary is never complete and never totally correct."
