What we might be observing is a change in usage. How often do you hear the words 'few, fewer' and 'number' replced by 'less' and 'amount'? And this morning Margaret Throsby (? spelling) of ABC corrected herself after using 'good' instead of 'well'. Soon even she may be using the new idiom. Language is dynamic but some things still grate!
