Word Experts in ‘Agreeance’ With Fred Durst

Hagit Borer, chairwoman of the University of Southern California’s linguistics department, defended frontman Fred Durst, calling use of the word “agreeance” when speaking out out about the impending war in Iraq at the Grammy Awards last month was an “innovative” choice, noting that the English language was malleable. “It’s not a conventional usage but I wouldn’t say it’s wrong,” Borer told Reuters. “It indicates is that he was making creative use of the language. That doesn’t make it wrong.”
