Re(4): As such...

Hear hear! I grieve that the uninterested/disinterested and infer/imply distinctions appear to be unimportant to so many people, including many teachers apparently. There is surely a need for a rich language like English to have nuances - after all, infer/imply is exactly like pull/push and few would be blind to the usefulness of being able to distinguish between two different kinds of "put in motion". I'm all in favour of change, as an evolving language is likely to be enriched by the introduction of new usages. But not by the blurring of useful subtleties.
