Languages do evolve, but it also isn't simply a free-for-all. If we allow misuse to desiccate words of meaning, we lose the precision they once connoted. Irony as a literary device is sublime. Irony as a synonym of 'coincidence' is banal.

I'm not promoting effete pedantry, I just appreciate a good nuance now and then.
