Mike’s Musings

Random thoughts, opinions, ideas and prognostications on the day's events.

Well, to be fair, if you are going to to have a contest for idiots and simpletons given by Progressive overseers on the Democratic Plantation it is only right that you lower the bar to where your expectations are for them.

TweetFlip Actually the title oversimplifies the matter. According to the website of the Center for Public Policy and Social Research at Central Connecticut State University (CSSU), “submissions will not be judged on traditional literary or grammatical standards.” The operative term in that requirement, I suspect, is traditional. In other words, we’re not in Kansas anymore, grammatically speaking. (RELATED: College writing center declares American English grammar a ‘racist,’ ‘unjust language structure’) The freedom to write in what used to be dismissed as substandard English (the use of ain’t and similar constructions, lack of subject-verb agreement) is all part of life in the woke new liberated world of American academe. In 2020 Rutgers University took a step toward mainstreaming once marginalized language with the introduction of “critical grammar.” “This approach,” wrote English Department Chairwoman Rebecca Walkowitz in an email to faculty, “challenges the familiar dogma that writing instruction should limit emphasis on grammar/sentence-level issues so as to not put students from multilingual, non-standard ‘academic’ English backgrounds at a disadvantage.”
