Standard English

The paragraphs on standard English, language variation, language structure and language structure and variation in speaking and listening, reading and writing provide a coherent basis for language study.

When teaching standard English it is helpful to bear in mind the most common nonstandard usages in England:

  • subject-verb agreement (they was)

  • formation of past tense (have fell, I done)

  • formation of negatives (ain't)

  • formation of adverbs (come quick)

  • use of demonstrative pronouns (them books).
