Stannis Baratheon: Protector of Grammar in Westeros
While Stannis Baratheon moves forward in his claim to take the Iron Throne at King’s Landing, he makes sure to correct the grammar of illiterates along the way.
Over the course of nearly 5 seasons on Game of Thrones, Stannis has taken the opportunity to clarify the difference between “less” and “fewer” on two occasions. The brief dialogue happens so quick that you might not notice it.
I almost feel like we’re getting a “wink, wink” from the show’s writers here, and I love it.
Here’s the first clip from Season 2.
And a clip from Season 5.
When and if Stannis take the Iron Throne, you better believe his subjects will know how to diagram a sentence.
