I’m sure I have read this somehwere and it is how I have concluded to the following observation. I believe that part of the reason adults have a language deficiecncy is not only due to being raised by parents who have less education, but also to socioeconomic status, and less exposure to an array of information. By “language deficiency” I am referring to knowledge and use of vocabulary. In addition to the way individuals express thoughts about anything really. This is another area of research I plan to explore….
This language deficiency, is very specific to individuals who speak something other than “Standard American English.” I can’t say that I have drawn this conclusion purely by what I have read in educational articles or textbooks.
This is something I have lived.
