QUESTION 5 - TO GRAMMAR, OR NOT TO GRAMMAR?
Date: March 11, 2015
Q5: "To Grammar, or not to
Grammar?" -- this is a true, difficult, actual question.
From: COROLLARY THEOREMS
A5. We struggle to
promote our Grammar books, though visitors'
reactions are still too timid. It looks as if they do not quite trust our words,
or maybe they are scared of learning so much "stuff". We
are certain that many site visitors are asking themselves whether it is worth
"to Grammar, or not to Grammar". Please consider
the following paragraphs.
Now, everybody knows that USA is printing paper money way more than
what they are able to cover using their gold reserves (plus all sort
of commodities, plus all other USA assets). Consequently, reputable
economists throughout the World are blaming the USA reckless policy
on printing money, except those economists are not able to see,
and to understand, the entire Global Picture.
USA is still the most advanced nation on the Planet in technology and scientific
development! Today, the old classic values, as was gold, mean
exactly nothing, economically, compared to the scientific &
technological wonders produced industrially today. Those extraordinary scientific artifacts represent the new
type of gold bullion, and
they are far more valuable than any classic commodity: the actual gold, oil,
gas, etc. However, there is a noticeable historical trend into the
great USA scientific development.
It happened that around 1970 some USA governmental authority has decided to extract
the English grammar from the general highschool Curriculum in order to cut down on the yearly educational costs. Note that this USA experience is an exceptional
unique social-test (one that has spanned for almost half a
century) therefore each nation on the Planet should learn about the
caveats of such important historical lesson. Today, 45 years later, it is the
proper moment to draw a red line and
count the most significant social . . . implications.
Up to 1970, USA was the undisputed promoter of scientific development in
the entire World, far ahead of any other nation. Think of those great, amazing, exceptionally talented pleiades of
USA-born scientists that have invented the transistor, the PC, and have
taken our hopes up to the surface of the Moon. The famous MADE IN USA
hallmark was the etalon of quality everywhere on the Planet--USA
included. Today, USA citizens are naming the 1960s-1970s period as "the
At a personal/individual level, note that a good command of Grammar has
two important manifestations. First, Grammar improves our logic,
even more than programming is able to do it. [Boolean Algebra
itself--the fundament of hardware, firmware, and software--is the
offspring of Grammar.] Secondly, Grammar helps us to understand way
faster anything we attempt to learn; therefore, our personal capacity of
learning increases a lot!
Back to the USA social experience, a lot of USA statistics tell us that
the USA citizens today (in 2015) are far more socially unsatisfied, compared to
the 1970s. The divorce rate has increased, while the wedding one has
decreased; the suicidal rate (particularly among youngsters) is
higher, as the level of happiness in USA touches historical lows. Since
1970, the USA Administrations have managed to push the nation (and the entire
World) back into another ECONOMIC RECESSION! In addition, note that North
American Universities appear to be located in Asia, these days.
Naturally, it doesn't matter where intelligence comes from, as long as
it is indeed intelligence; however, it is the TREND that matters.
Since 1970, USA illiteracy is increasing constantly!
Even so, USA citizens are reading a lot more compared to any other
nation on the Planet--again, USA is still the champion in scientific development, although they are losing grounds to
competition with each
passing day. Naturally, we [at COROLLARY THEOREMS] would like to see a higher quality of reading in USA (this is, way better/logical books), and a lot more,
if possible, except
that is an internal domestic matter solely in the hands of the current USA Administration.
For each nation on our Planet, if their Governments intend to reach
constantly superior levels of scientific development, then each new
generation of their high school students must study Grammar, because Grammar
lowers the average level of illiteracy and it fortifies national development.
Grammar needs to be included as a compulsory discipline in all
management training courses. In addition to enhancing peoples
capacity of logic reasoning, Grammar is also an exceptional model
of perfect/total organization!
Note that Morphology deals with analyzing the elementary forms,
plus local structures of forms, within the general, open to all,
morphologic sentence domain. Sentence Syntax deals with a few,
simple, basic functionalities, though only within the rigid
syntactic sentence frame. Finally, Complex Sentence Syntax is
an exceptional grammatical aggregate of form &
However, we need to emphasize again that a good, logic, and socially-benefic
Grammar--as an abstract logic mathematical instrument--is presented only in our books, "Logically
Structured English Grammar 4" and "LSEG4-Exercises Workbook".
