Rules of engagement? Usage and normativism: public discourse and critical language awareness: The third item in a series from the University of Leiden ‘Bridging the Unbridgeable’ project on prescriptivism

  • Robin Straaijer

Extract

In English Today 30.1, Ingrid Tieken-Boon van Ostade introduced the Leiden University research project, ‘Bridging the Unbridgeable: Linguists, Prescriptivists and the General Public’, and gave an example of the kind of questions we ask ourselves. That example, about questions relating to the use of have went, was very specific. In this feature, we have some questions that are rather more general, and which have to do with the discourse on usage and normativism.
