How worthwhile or worthless do you people out here believe is it to keep pressing on the grammatical linguistic correctness as far as one is able to get the message across, clear and understandable?
Languages were primarily conceived to communicate and then grammar followed...(i almost freaked out during thoz grammar lectures at school
)...when it came to using grammar , i was better off than most of my peers..thou i could hardly tell a noun from a verb
...How significant do u guys feel is to study grammar as a separate discipline ...in d times when languages are evolving at a faster rate than ever and the trend of using 'Hybrid languages' is catching up.
History has been witness to the fact that creative brains have never abided by THE GRAMMATICAL NORMS when it came to writing prose n poetry...(Shakespeare use of super superlatives, poets coinage of new terms)..i still remember how i got into a debate with my English grammar teacher with d same arguments as an 11 year old..it wasn't d soundest thing to do considering what followed
Jokes apart...I am a newbie (again, a slang) here and would be encouraged by your posts and kind comments ...Happy Posting people !!
