Anonymous said: What is prescriptivist

Oh! Well it’s a little hard for me to explain but what that post refers to is grammar prescriptivism as opposed to grammar descriptivism. Descriptivism, to me, bases an understanding of proper grammar in reality and in the way a language is used. Prescriptivists will turn up their noses at these very little things like splitting infinitives in writing and basically there are many things that prescriptivists classify as a “grammar error” that do not at all cloud the meaning of a sentence. Prescriptivists get their grammar “rules” from the rules that were made by wealthy white people several hundred years ago, and are of the opinion that because the people with the most money and power talk a certain way, it is the only way that someone can talk without being grammatically incorrect. In reality, there are many different ways to speak English and many different dialects that are all equally valid and of equal value to each other and to “standard” English. Prescriptivists, in short, tend to ignore that the “rules” for grammar that they uphold are based firmly in social oppression.

Does that make sense to you? And does anyone else have anything they’d like to add to my answer, or anything they’d like to correct?

The concept of “Proper English” is prescriptivist, racist, ethnocentric, classist and ableist as shit

This man is my hero.
He’s like a Monty Python character.
