Once again, basically all of the major academic and journalistic style guides at this point give the singular "they" the a-ok.

Did you know you can also start a sentence with a preposition?

Why?

We’re are making good time, neither tarrying nor running. I bet our faces are expressionless. One or more may be dressed as a cleric of some sort, and another might be dressed as a traveling drummer. The others could be peasants or serfs going from one location to another for the harvest season.
And while we're carrying some sort of weapons, it's plain we're not soldiers as we have a haphazard way of walking. Nor do we seem to be joking loudly or singing as we advance.

And soon we did happen upon a tainted lake, where we were greeted by a Nymph. She was distraught, her perfect skin glistened with the tears of her sorrow, for her lover was asleep having consumed the enchanted water. In her fragile state she had not thought to even try to wake him herself, such was her pain.

"Wakey wakey Evan!" we chimed, and thus did the Ranger open his eyes.

"You are so clever!" gushed Chloe, "Why did I not think of that?". And with that she handed us the potion capable of ridding the lake of its enchantment.

You've always been able to start a sentence with a preposition. It's ending sentences with prepositions that people refer to. :D

I got tired of linguistics discussions so I jumped 5 pages ahead to find...the same linguistic discussion with the same arguments being made.

Is this discussion going anywhere other than people just repeating their same points hoping the other person just lets them have the last word?

Storytellers from 1000 years from now: "...and legend says they are still debating the fine points of grammar and linguistics to this very day."

Well, we had tried to move on to a wonderful discussion about how us New Englanders don't really care that we are a part of a region known as "New England", and it only exists in an attempt to merge us all together to the same size as most other states in the union... but that seems to have run its course. Granted, you're a West Coaster [MENTION=2525]Mistwell[/MENTION] so you probably don't care about this issue in the least... but sometimes I find it's good to mock myself and my fellow Patriots-loving, bean-eating a-wipes. ;)

I think what actually happened is that some of us were discussing "y'all" and how Texas wasn't part of the South ...

and then OF COURSE someone from New England had to come in and ruin everything because we weren't talking about New England and something something the Patriots are all just misunderstood something something GOODELL IS THE REAL CHEATER AND BRADY IS THE GOAT something something IM NOT A BANDWAGON FAN, IMA WEAR MY PINK RED SAWKS HAT SINCE 2014 something something yeah, I went to school in New England, that counts right something something you just don't get it, we really are long suffering, I mean, the Celtics didn't even make it to the finals this year blah blah blah LOOK AT ME, DID YOU KNOW WE PLAY SPORTS AND STUFF? YANKEES SUCK. GRONK 4-EVAH!

To be fair, that’s not very interesting conversation for 99.99% of people either. :)
