Sample text

The advocates of the superiority of standard English could also ascribe to this purism. An important example of this is Oliphant (1873), whose account of Standard English includes many lamentations at the damage done to English by the influence of French. According to him the ‘good old masonry’ of Anglo-Saxon had been adulterated by ‘meaner ware imported from France’. Sweet (1964:244–5) advocated that schoolchildren should not be taught Latin and Greek until late in their schooling, if at all, and that they should be taught Anglo-Saxon early.

The standard ideology and the descriptive tradition The groundwork of comparative (and to a great extent, structural) linguistics was laid down in the nineteenth century, and English philology was effectively a sub-branch of this, applying its principles to the description of the history of English. The ideological underpinnings of much of this are more apparent in retrospect than they were at the time, and the ideology with which we are principally interested here is the development of strong nationalism in certain northern European states and the identification of the national language as a symbol of national unity and national pride.

A more specific example from generative grammar studies, in which the influence of standardisation seems to be clear, is Creider (1986), who discusses double embedded relatives with resumptive pronouns of the type It went down over by that river that we don’t know where it goes. These are commonly found in quite formal styles (one of Creider’s examples is from the speech of a US presidential candidate on television), and he describes them as ‘hopelessly and irretrievably ungrammatical’ in English.
