English is a living language that is constantly evolving
Words are important and it is as easy to write good English as it is bad English, says Dr Declan Collinge
Have you ever been watching TV, listening to the radio or reading your newspaper when you came across something which sets your teeth on edge?
It isn’t just the mispronunciation of words or misspellings (accidental “typos” of mistakes made through ignorance), though these are annoying enough. But what about the poor use of language?
Allowing for the fact that English is a living language and constantly evolving, we need to remember that words are important and the way we use them, equally so. It’s as easy to write good English as bad English.
