Dominus Vobiscum: Notes from a massgoer's underground

Death to the English (and any other) language!

Berkeley’s language cops reject the term “master,” instead of insisting on terms like “captain,” “skipper” or “pilot.” Let’s hope the University of California doesn’t have to change “master’s degree” to “skipper’s degree.”

The council also objects to the word “heir,” preferring the term “beneficiaries.” But there’s no gender reference in “heirs.” The dictionary definition is “a person legally entitled to the property or rank of another on that person’s death.”
