Project Description

I want to get this work done within 24 hours.

Read "The Language Mavens" and write a short essay (500-700 words) comparing and contrasting the prescriptive and the descriptive attitudes towards language. Give an example of a situation in which someone's way of speaking was criticized on the grounds of grammatical incorrectness (as opposed, say, to impoliteness, inappropriateness, vulgarity, or interference from another language), and explain how this criticism reveals a prescriptive attitude.
