Let's suppose that I am having an argument with someone about how to properly write a Russian word (e.g., прожжёный мошенник vs. прожжённый мошенник) or whether a comma should be put in a certain Russian sentence.
My question is this: How can we find out the ultimate truth to resolve our argument? What book or source should we look in? Or what is the algorithm of finding out the ultimate truth in such arguments?
If I refer to the actual usage as seen in Google and in Google Books, my opponent will say that many Russians are careless and ignorant and write wrongly, including Russian journalists and writers.
If I refer to examples in books by classic Russian writers, my opponent will say that classic Russian writers did not always follow the grammar rules and that the grammar rules have changed.
If I ask a question on gramota.ru, where Russian grammar experts answer grammar-related questions, my opponent will say that the expert may have mistaken because of failing to think deep enough or lacking some specific piece of knowledge.
If I refer to Rozental's book, my opponent will say that it is just the opinion of Rozental, who may well be wrong on the matter we are arguing about, and that the mighty Russian language is not obligated to always follow primitive oversimplified prescriptive rules written by some Jew.
So I need armor-piercing shells. I need something that my opponents won't be able to rebut. I need something as sacred as the Bible. I need a source of ultimate truth. There must be an algorithm to find out the ultimate truth about any grammar question, and I want to find that algorithm. And I humbly hope that the users of this SE can help a desperate Orient student find what she wants.
