Query:   Dear historical linguists,

I am currently working on eighteenth-century grammarians and their possible influence on the development of the English subjunctive mood. To this purpose, I am carrying out a survey to find out who is considered the most influential grammarian during the 'age of prescriptivism'. I would therefore like to appeal to other linguists working on the eighteenth century to nominate who you think is 'the most influential grammarian' and why you chose this particular grammarian (i.e. depending on your particular research interest).

I will inform you of the outcome of this poll. Could you please send your replies to

Thanks for your help!

Kind regards,
