English is a Jerk
April 10, 2012
I have many students in my college classes who are acquiring English while taking college classes in English. I really have to admire what they’re doing because English is a jerk. Many English language rules are senseless to begin with, and then we break them with great gusto on a regular basis. Learning English as an adult must be like playing Battleship with a cheater who sneakily moves his ships around whenever his opponent scores a hit.
