Linguistics of Come-and-Hear™
Come and Hear™ subscribes to conventional linguistic rules when writing about societies, nations, and peoples. We apply these conventions across the board.
The statement, "Americans bombed Cambodia during the Vietnam War," is a true statement, even though not every American was part of that effort.
The statement, "The Americans voted Richard Nixon into the presidency," is a true statement, even though not every American voted for President Nixon.
The statement, "Apple pie is the favorite American dessert," is true, although some Americans clearly love cherry pie more.
Come and Hear™ uses the terms "Jews" and "Jewish" in the same manner.
Thank you for your consideration of the above,
