From the book “The English Language and Literature” by J.A. Cooley: “It is no accident that the language of English, which has a long tradition of combining a broad range of different forms of expression and thought with a distinctive set of rules, is also the language with the highest rate of English illiteracy.
That’s the point: language, like literacy, has been an important component of the social structure that has made English one of the world’s great, if not the greatest, languages.”
– from the book on English literature by A.J. Coley, “The Complete English Language: A Practical Guide” http://www.jcoley.com/articles/english-literature-literaturas-literary-language-english-history/ It is no wonder that we need to be mindful of the “great” English language that has always been a part of the fabric of our culture.
