Does the average American student have less vocabulary today than in days gone by?Is that a correct usering of “less”? Shouldn’t it be “fewer”? ::joke::
Seriously, though, I’ve heard of people having a limited vocabulary, a smaller vocabulary, but never “less vocabulary”. Is that a newly coined phrase?
Since the word in question is in the headline and not the text, could it be the work of a Reader editor rather than Cecil, or does he write his own his headlines?
