Date: Mon, 15 Jan 1996 14:42:18 -0800 From: THOMAS CLARK Subject: myths about language A few years ago I had a list of myths about language that I used to begin my semester in Intro to Ling. I had taken quite a few from the first page of somebody's (work?)book, and made additions. Now I can't find it. Can you help me out? Most of these were short, such as Never end a sentence with a preposiiton We acquire languaguage from out parents and caregivers only People used to speak better English than they do now Redundancy has no place in English English is easier for children to learn than Chinese Thanks and Cheers, Thomas L.
