I agree that language is evolving and long may it do so.

I think that the current use of 'for free' is terrible, it should either be 'free' or 'for nothing'.

I think that change is here to stay and I accept it but I will never use it. However, for future generations it will be the norm and English has moved a little further.

It is that constant change that has enabled English to remain such a beautiful, expressive and relevant language.
