Between you and I — Redux

I expressed my views on between you and I in an earlier post (which you can read here). If you find the subject even marginally interesting, I recommend that you listen to this thoughtful (and balanced) podcast at Slate’s Lexicon Valley. The podcast includes a reference to this old New York Times column, in which Russell Baker explicates, with characteristic style, Shakespeare’s blunder in writing between you and I in The Merchant of Venice.
