I'm with Christopher Gultch on this one-- English is what it is because of
how it's used by real live speakers and writers of the language. A
dictionary, a grammar and usage guide, a style guide, can only attempt to
pin down the currently accepted standards, not be a law by which English is
governed indefinitely.

re: It never fails to irk me when words are used in ways that are incorrect
(irregardless, prioritize, etc.) and then they end up in the dictionary
because so many people make the mistake.
