What might be the earliest documented cases of negative reactions to
language change (for example, statements along the lines of "young
people nowadays don't speak the language well")? I've heard that these
sentiments were expressed in ancient Greece and Rome, but haven't found
the actual quotes. Does anyone have such quotes handy? Thanks in advance.
