A dear friend, who I don't talk to as much now as I once did, has used the word "learnings" twice in the past week. (As in, "what are the three key learnings we can take away from this morning's presentation?") This is one of the smartest, most urbane, yet down-to-earth people I know.  A poet-lawyer.  More to the point:  this is exactly the kind of offense against the English language that I would expect to raise her ire and set off a scathing but elegant rant on her secret public blog.

What is my responsibility to this friend? An intervention? A stern e-mail? Silent judgement? Some sort of online petition?
