English Language - Reading Response, Coursework

David Crystal: Making Sense, Chapters 11–12 On pp. 84–85, Crystal talks about the metalanguage children learn for talking about language (wow, that was a very meta sentence). What metalanguage do you remember having, or think you might have had as a kid? Do you remember noticing or talking about language with your family or friends? Were there games you played with language? Feel free to include ways of talking about a first language other than English. Based either on what you’ve read so far, or on life experience, do you think grammar/syntax should be taught in schools? Why or why not? If so, to what extent, and beginning at what age? On pp. 92–93 Crystal discusses the ways noun case used to be taught to children. We’re about to discuss nouns next week—can you explain what people were trying to teach and why children (and probably teachers, too!) found it so confusing? Based on the examples Hazlitt criticizes on p. 92, what generalizations can you make about the “nominative” and “accusative” case in English? Starting on p. 94, Crystal describes the origins and meaning of the term “prescriptive grammar,” giving as an example the rule “never end a sentence with a preposition.” In this class (ENGL 104), you will soon be doing a research project identifying one prescriptive English rule, researching its origins, comparing the rule to actual usage, and finally making a recommendation for English speakers and writers. Huddleston and Pullum periodically intersperse “Prescriptive Notes” with the regular material in the chapters. Take a look at a few of these from the first five chapters of A Student’s Introduction and identify one or two you might like to know more about. Have you encountered them in your experience as a writer or language learner so far? What do you already know about them? P.S.: check out the use of “oughtn’t” on the ninth line of p. 100. Do we all know what kind of verb it is? :) P.P.S.: further down the same page, check out the use of the verb “look” with a predicate complement! Do we still use it that way?
