ら抜き

記事:ら抜き「来れる」、10歳代では7割以上が使用

「食べれる」「来れる」など、動詞の受身形の「ら」が抜いた言葉の使用率が増えつつあるらしい。言語も進化するものだね。(僕はといえば時々使ってしまっている。)

川柳聞いたかい? 日本語の「ら」は もう要ない

Adult Adoption in Japan

Freakonomics posted a very interesting article entitled "Why Adult Adoption is Key to the Success of Japanese Family Firms" on their site the other day. You can read the article or you can listen to "The Church of Sciontology," their first hour-long podcast, in which the subject was originally touched upon.

It would be an interesting turn of events were I to be adopted in such a manner. I'm not sure that it suits me, though.

Also, wow, this is my first English post in some time, isn't it?
