Michael Quinion has announced that he will no longer be updating the World Wide Words website. That is a shame as it has grown to become an extremely valuable resource. But time passes and circumstances change, and the site has had a very long, in internet years, run. The web site will, at least, continue to remain available in its current form for some time to come. So that is some consolation.
I, for one, wish Michael the best and hope that he will continue to contribute the world of lexicography, in some form or manner, for a long time to come.
