Example text

Some critics of the earlier studies had suggested that the lack of any measurable differences might be the result of different teaching styles, so the researchers were particularly careful to control this variable. ), and literature.  The third group studied traditional grammar and engaged in reading popular fiction.  Students also wrote essays at the end of each year that were scored for content, style, organization, and mechanics.  At the end of the second year, the students Page 47 who had studied traditional grammar produced essays that were judged to have better content than those of the students who had not studied any grammar, but the raters found no significant difference on other factors, such as mechanics and sentence complexity, which were judged similar for all groups.

Consider the following scenario: At a school board meeting, a local principal is explaining why her school needs to have Internet access: Of course, you want to know why our students need access to the Internet. The reason is because everyone says that it's important.  Given the grammar and usage con­ Page 39 ventions we have outlined here, any use of The reason is because would have to be deemed not only nonstandard but also ungrammatical. Applying Key Ideas Directions: This activity has two parts, both intended to provide an opportunity to apply information from the previous discussion to your own language.

In the case of Fred sent Macarena a gift, dropping the direct object may be grammatical, but it changes the sentence grammatically and semantically: Fred sent Macarena.  An equally troubling example occurs with the ditransitive verb buy: • Fred bought his mother a present. Fred bought his mother.  The fact that there are some ditransitives, such as ask, that allows us to drop the direct object without changing the grammatical relations or the meaning of the sentence is sheer coincidence and fairly trivial.
