grammar police

 

Correct spelling and grammar are no longer viewed as essential communication rules, especially on social media. For instance, “whose” and “who’s” have become interchangeable in the same way as “you’re” and “your”. In Malagasy, a verb in the future tense should begin with the letter “h”, but social media users nowadays tend to completely ignore those basic principles. The same applies to words like enw instead of the academically correct ianao, as well as cc instead of “manahoana” or “manao ahoana”, etc.
The current mainstream mindset is that any spelling can do as long as the reader can guess what’s being inferred. However, this has a seriously negative effect on learning. We often encounter those mistakes so many times that in the long run, our minds eventually tend to perceive them as correct or at least acceptable, and we end up reproducing them during moments of inattention.
On the other hand, individuals who try to correct other people’s misspellings and grammatical mistakes are often bashed and pejoratively labeled as the “grammar police[ref.] . With all of this combined, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a decline in young students’ academic performance and success rates in national exams.

While French is one of our country’s official languages, scholars have found that the general population’s level of proficiency in French has largely declined over the past two decades [ref.], and many still struggle with the use of spoken French in daily life.
Here are a few tips that may offer insights on how to express oneself confidently in French in everyday situations.

No matter how weird my post may sound, French is still an undeniable part of our linguistic identity, and losing our identity won’t lead us anywhere.

… Du scepticisme quant à l’intégration des réfugiés

… Un Français sur deux considère que les migrations pour “sécurité économique et sociale” sont plus “crédibles” que “la recherche de refuge”. Seuls 43% des Français estiment qu’échapper à la guerre ou à des persécutions “constitue une raison suffisamment légitime pour se réfugier” alors que le taux pour la population mondiale s’élève à 61%, ce qui place les Français en bas du classement avec les Hongrois.

Les Français sont également les plus sceptiques concernant l’intégration des réfugiés. Ils sont 58% à être convaincus que les réfugiés ne peuvent pas s’intégrer à la société d’accueil contre 47% de la population mondiale.

Enfin, la fermeture des frontières est de plus en plus considérée comme une “solution” : 42% de la population française y est favorable, soit une augmentation de 2% en deux ans.
